School head Sarah Sanderson said: “It was so amazing to see so many people attend the event - young and old interacting, comparing taste buds and reflecting on 70 years of the Queen's reign.

"We are so grateful to FOSS for hosting the event and raising money for our school. We are grateful also to the WI and the to Thrifty Ladies that helped us set up; they shared their expertise and we couldn't have done it without them.”

Lancaster mayor Coun Joyce Pritchard, who attended the event, said: "It was a pleasure to meet all the children and listen to them singing. We also enjoyed live music during the afternoon.

"But most of all an enormous amount of food; the children had made lots of it and were very proud of their achievements. One small boy was showing me his pizza with edible flowers on it.
