Ilkeston - The Queen's Golden Jubilee
w/e 02 June 2002

Jubilee celebrations have begun in earnest this weekend and on Sunday evening the first in the series of summer band concerts took place in Victoria Park above this floral tribute.
The bandstand was adorned with two small Union Flags and even this motorised wheelchair was sporting the flag of St George.
Many private dwellings too are decorated with bunting and flags. With the World Cup also taking place it is often difficult to ascertain whether the displays are in recognition of the Queen's Jubilee or a sign of support for the nation's football team..
There is little doubt here though, in a quiet cul-de-sac that the bunting is a Jubilee decoration
Whilst the "Three Horseshoes" and "Miners Arms" public houses on Derby Road are taking no chances and combining both events.
And what else could the public house called the "Prince Of Wales" be celebrating but the Jubilee with the Union Flag draped from the upper storey window.
