Martin Pailthorpe and Anthea Sanders have been working on a project to collect people's memories from the Coronation in 1953. there are some fantastic stories from Kingsnympton and further afield. It received its world premier in the Parish Hall on June 5th! It's a great story that reflects how the country celebrated, so make sure you don't miss it!! Click on the box below.
For the Diamond Jubilee in 2012 we had a huge tea in the Parish Hall...
...followed by a Hog Roast, Beacon Lighting and Jazz Band in the evening
(complete with champagne and cake)
In 2002, we celebrated the Golden Jubilee with a party in the Square
1977 Silver Jubilee - party in the Square
And we're pretty sure that this party in the Square must have been in 1953, for the Coronation itself.
Everyone is in their Sunday Best (including John Rainger, on the left - can anyone identify any of the other people in the picture?) and there is a picture of the Queen in the window on the right that is similar to the one published in newspapers across the country to celebrate the day.
