THE Lord Lieutenant of Somerset Annie Maw has completed the final leg of her epic series of Jubilee Jaunts to celebrate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

Mrs Maw took on her toughest trek on Saturday (July 23) as she tackled some of West Somerset’s most challenging terrain, including the highest point on Exmoor, Dunkery Beacon.

She completed her series of jaunts in a wheelchair as she was left with paraplegia after she broke her back in a horse riding accident 20 years ago.

But she didn't allow that to get in the way of commemorating the Queen's 70-year reign as she traversed 70 miles across Somerset in seven sections over the past two months in her motorised buggy.

She has been accompanied by local Duke of Edinburgh students on every section of her journey.

Following completion of the final leg of her journey, Mrs Maw said: “It has been a wonderful experience to see so much of our county’s outstanding scenery during these excursions, but even better to meet so many inspiring young people who have joined me along the way.

“The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee is a once in a lifetime event, and I am delighted to have been able to help Somerset pay tribute to Her Majesty in this way.”

Ms Maw finishing her jaunts rounds off Somerset’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations, which have seen dozens of dazzling street parties, the lighting of beacons across the county and hundreds of new trees planted as part of the Queen’s Green Canopy.
