Wilby PC chairman attends King's Coronation Garden Party

It was with amazement that I received an invitation to this lovely occasion held at such an important time in King Charles' reign.

Fortunately, this news was given in good time which enabled my wife and myself to fully prepare – new wardrobes all round! Despite the early spring date, the weather gods smiled on the 8000 or so guests, as we enjoyed blue skies and sunshine throughout. How lovely it was too to be able to approach the Palace along the Mall and to see all the preparations for Coronation Day. More »

As might be expected, the event was conducted with military precision amid much friendliness and warmth despite the all-important security checks in place.

A wonderful tea was taken and, later, ice creams provided to keep us all cool.

Despite the numbers, we did manage a glimpse of the King chatting with Lionel Richie, who is to perform at the Windsor Coronation Concert.

We will be forever grateful to our friends in Northants CALC for giving us this once in lifetime opportunity to attend.

With best wishes to all serving our Parishes in Northamptonshire – what a privilege it was to be asked to represent you!
