Coronation of King Charles III

What an amazing Coronation Tea we all had this afternoon. Over 50 guests enjoyed a selection of sandwiches, and quiches including the coronation quiche, sausage rolls, veggies rolls, cheese scones, cream teas, trifles, various cakes and more…
Guests took turns having their picture taken with our knitted Crown, sceptre and orb and all thoroughly enjoyed it.
18 volunteers decorated the hall with bunting, flags, banners, balloons and flowers from Charlton Park Garden Centre (Sarah Varney) pots painted superbly by students at Millbrook Primary School making the whole hall red, white & blue and looking very patriotic.
Each guest went home with a special coronation mug made by Snob & Lock in Wantage and beautiful coronation cupcakes from L&S Cakes in East Hanney.
A fun-filled afternoon watching the return to the palace and fly past plus all the wonderful music added to the atmosphere.
Several parish councillors popped in to help serve and speak to the guests. Wantage MP David Johnston also popped in and chatted with our guests who were pleased to see him.
A huge thank you to the Cornerstone Cafe for such exceptional food which was devoured by all our guests. Thank you to Grove Parish Council for funding the meal and everything else. A very big thank you to all our wonderful volunteers for making this such a special event on a historic day.
