Diamond Jubilee: Can you spot yourself in our picture gallery?
Cake has been eaten, the bunting taken down, the tables have been returned - and lasting memories were made.
The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee was celebrated in style all over the borough showing a real reflection of the spirit, humour, community and diversity of Newham.
Rain failed to dampen the smell of barbecues sizzling away, while more traditional parties lined the roads with tables laden with Victoria Sponges and trifle, and elsewhere everyone brought a dish, sometimes from their native countries, to share with others.
Residents took up the opportunity to dress up in red, white, and blue with enthusiasm, while younger ones paraded around as Kings and Queens for the day - one young man even dressed up as The Queen herself in Pelly Road, Plaistow.
Children were the focus of attention at many parties, and in many schools, taking part in talent shows, special assemblies, Punch & Judy shows, and drawing pictures in Bluebell Ave, Manor Park, illustrating why they love living in Newham.

As well as having the privilege to attend many parties ourselves, generous readers have also shared their photographs with us so the Recorder has gathered a selection here in our online picture gallery.
