Union jacks fluttered in the breeze and the dulcet tones of Vera Lynn could be heard in almost every street as the district marked the 75th anniversary of VE Day.
The hastily arranged commemorations for the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday saw solemn displays of remembrance as well as people having some well-earned fun.
There were virtual church services and parades and many people set themselves up in their front gardens to enjoy the sunshine and mark the occasion with neighbours at a safe distance.
96-year-old Dora Hardy, from Eaton Socon, enjoyed the sunshine in her front garden in Dukes Road.
Steven Carr organised a virtual VE Day parade and his neighbours in Hartford decorated their homes.
