There was fun galore to be had in New Pitsligo this last week as the community rallied to celebrate the platinum jubilee.

The fun kicked off on Sunday, May 29, with a pet parade.

Then on Thursday locals could enjoy a game of extreme hide and seek, with anyone who managed to seek The Queen able to claim a prize.

The sun shone for the Freemasonry barbecue on Friday before the pinnacle of the week's celebrations - a family fun day - attracted crowds to the football park on Saturday.

With stalls from a variety of community groups, including the Boys' Brigade and St John's Church, visitors were also able to enjoy the shelter of a tea tent provided by New Pitsligo Legion.

Attractions included bouncy castles, beat the goalie and face painting.

Entertainment was provided throughout the day, including football challenges, sponge the teachers, a fancy dress parade and an energetic performance by the local school choir.

To commemorate the special occasion, a special presentation was also made to the village's two oldest and two youngest residents - the accolade of oldest resident was bestowed upon Mima Steven (98) and the youngest resident title went to Ella Harley at just four days old.

The weekend finished with a family disco in the Legion.
