Clavering residents crowned their Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations with a special evensong at the parish church of St Mary and St Clement, led by vicar the Rev Margaret Davis.

The act of worship followed a full programme for villagers, co-ordinated by an organising committee led by Donna Duckworth.

Residents explored Clavering's past with archaeology sessions, an archaeology roadshow and a history exhibition.
