Coronation of King Charles III
We hope everyone enjoyed the coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6th May 2023 and the many events that took place over this special weekend. We were blessed with lovely sunshine on Sunday 7th May 2023 and hope residents who either held their Big Lunch on their street, or were able to use one of our parks to bring friends and family together had a great time. Below shows what the Council arranged in celebration of this special occasion.
May we wish King Charles III a long and peaceful reign.
