A Jubilee celebration display in St Peter’s Church featured royal mementos going back to 1888.

It was put together by curate Rev Alison Waterhouse from a collection began by her mum.

Alison, who was a postwoman before becoming a vicar, said: “We have continued adding to it and people also donate items, which is nice.

“The display is just a fraction of what there is, and it’s lovely to display some of it for people to enjoy.

“The royal family mementos include commemorative crockery, old newspapers and there is Second World War and Titanic memorabilia, and photos among other items.”

One of Alison’s favourite pieces is a commemorative box that opens to reveal Buckingham Palace.
