A street in Sidmouth was able to celebrate the Queen's Platinum Jubilee in style thanks to a one-off gift from the Co-op.

The Platinum Jubilee, which marks 70 years since the accession of Queen Elizabeth II to the throne, was celebrated over four days from Thursday 2 to Sunday 5 June.

Local resident Jacqui Crump received a box packed with jubilee-themed items including mini flags, crowns, bunting, and more to mark the once-in-a-lifetime occasion.

She won it as a prize in a one-off Nub News and Co-op competition last month.

Elsewhere in Sidmouth, a large street party was held in the town centre, and a Sidmouth baker created a unique Victoria sponge 'cookie pie'.

The deadline for local causes and groups to apply for funding in the Co-op's Local Community Fund is fast approaching - click here to find out more.
