Thoughts From The Coronation In 1952
     

In the Golden Jubilee Year, my thoughts are turned to the Queen’s Coronation, when as a teenager I lived in Bobbington and remembered how we celebrated the occasion.

Most of the villagers viewed the event on a big screen television, which was installed in the Village Hall. Even if people had their own television, it was mostly 12” size which we thought a marvelous invention. Food was available in party spirit, and it was truly a memorable and joyous time with dancing to round off the evening.

My father’s garden was a delight in patriotic theme, red Salvias, white Alyssum and blue Lobelia, it brought many a customer to The Red Lion!

It was certainly a day to remember—a fun filled friendly village memory
