Robert Murphy reflects on four days of celebration that won't be repeated for generations - the Diamond Jubilee has been marked with everything from street parties to beacons and big concerts. Almost wherever you looked, the West played its part in the biggest party seen for years.
Ken Goodwin has been in Gloucester where celebrations carry on for the last day of the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. The rain may be here to stay, but it's not putting people off making the best of the bank holiday.
Schoolchildren across the region have been busy learning about the monarchy from those who witnessed the Coronation first hand.
Pupils in Somerset were joined in class and in song by some of those who've lived throguh the Queen's 60-year reign.
Among the jubilee beacons lit across the region at 10p.m. last night [Monday] was this one at Twerton Roundhill overlooking Bath.
Around a hundred people gathered to see the bonfire and sing a verse of the National Anthem. Amongst them was our reporter, Bob Constantine.
In the distance, Bob could see the Balloon Glow on Solsbury Hill on the other side of the city... there was even a spectacular moon too!
A Gloucester choirboy will be singing for the Queen today at St Paul's Cathedral in London. Sebastian Ferris - a pupil at Kings School - will perform a piece written for the Jubilee along with 40 other specially selected children.
He was picked from hundreds of applicants who auditioned from around the country.
