The Coronation of King Charles III – Blithfield Parish Celebration

On the afternoon of Monday 8 May 2023, around 140 members of our parish along with their friends and families came together at Admaston village hall to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

The hall and marquee were decorated with bunting and looked fantastic.

Unfortunately the weather was a little damp, so the children’s games we had planned to hold outside in a garden, on School Lane, were swiftly re-organised and held inside the hall, along side a very popular craft table and Best Crown competition.  There were some wonderful creations and the children all had a great time.

All the children of the parish have received Coronation mugs since the event..

Once the children’s activities were complete, the hall and the marquee, erected in front began to fill up.  Drinks and chat were enjoyed followed by a hog roast and beautiful homemade cupcakes decorated with Coronation motifs.

As the we finished eating, Lola Lamour started to sing, she worked hard to keep us entertained, in the marquee and the hall, and as always she did a wonderful job and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The parish council would like to extend their thanks to the many people who helped make this event such a success.  In particular we are very grateful to Cawarden Brick and Tile Company for their support.
