King Charles III Coronation Street Party @ Church Street

The Kings Coronation Party in More Detail

The Parish Council is working closely with the Red Lion and Maggie who is organising several children’s activities (with help from Sophie) for the street party on Sunday 7th May.

A number of people have already volunteered to help on the day but more are welcome. We will be setting up from 9am outside the Red Lion, collecting and putting up the marquee, tables, chairs and bunting. So if you have not already done so, please do get in-touch.

The Hog Roast is free for all to share and a vegetarian burger alternative will also be available. Everyone is encouraged to bring whatever food and drink they may require such as salads and sweets. As with the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee last years, if  you want to bring your own gazebo chairs and tables there will be room for you to set up in the street. Decorating your table and dressing up yourself is to be encouraged.

Maggie is organising a children’s street pageant, so parents get working on your ideas for custom-made costumes. There will be prizes!

Finally Angie Miles has very generously volunteered to back a Coronation cake.
