The children of Aberbeeg have been very busy at school making Jubilee related artwork to decorate its halls as the village celebrates Queen Elizabeth’s Silver Jubilee. Bunting hangs high, and children are dressed in some wonderful costumes that include a post box! Egg and spoon races take place in a field, and it all culminates in a community feast, everyone gathered around long tables positioned in the middle of the street.
