Like grandfather, like granddaughter: family recalls past Jubilees and enjoys festivities in Hornchurch
Seven-month-old Ava Bates was transfixed by the Jubilee medal she was given at the kids’ tea party in The Mall, Hornchurch.
“It’s the first thing she’s won,” joked Ava’s grandfather Ron Worsley.
“I was at the Silver Jubilee in East Ham in 1977, and now I’m at the Diamond Jubilee.”
Gesturing at the darkening sky, Mr Worsley recalled that “the weather was similar” at the celebrations 35 years ago.
