This weekend saw history made with the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
Across Lowton and Golborne, people were marking the occasion in many different ways – from parties to planting.
Here’s a little taste of how schools, community groups and neighbours came together to celebrate…
At St Catherine of Siena RC Primary in Lowton, families were invited in to help the children create a Coronation themed garden – with the shape of a crown planted out with donated red, white and blue flowers.
Lowton West Residents held a sold-out Coronation Afternoon Tea at Church Lane Community Centre in Lowton. There was a delicious Coronation themed afternoon tea and the 40 guests were entertained by a ukelele band, raffle and fun Royal quiz.
The party was paid for thanks to funding from the Brigher Borough Fund via the Golborne and Lowton West Councillors. And entertainment was provided by the ukelele band from the U3A. We hear that there was lots of singing and people on the dance floor… so it certainly seems that a good time was had by all!
At The Daten community hall in Culcheth, they were fully in the swing of the Coronation celebrations, gathering to watch the event on their big screen. Their Coronation Party included a sing-a-long and games with a Disney Princess, a ‘Bake-off’ competition, Best Royal Dress competition, bouncy castle, face painting and crown making.
The residents of Harvey Lane in Golborne certainly know how to come together and throw a good bash – and the Coronation was no exception.
The street was bedecked in red white and blue and the residents enjoyed a huge street party, with entertainment including a rousing performance by the fantastic Golborne Brass Band.
The Golborne in Bloom team were busy in the run-up to the Coronation, making sure Golborne looked lovely. The group of volunteers have been brightening up the front of Golborne Library, with help from pupils at St Thomas’s Primary school.
At Bridgewater Day Care Centre in Golborne, the older people enjoyed the build up to the Coronation, doing lots of themed arts and crafts, including making their own Coronation flags, balloons and bunting to wave at the celebrations!
