Coronation Capers again

At the 1953 coronation

Our queen became 90 this year – an event which Market Lavington will celebrate on 12th June. The queen of course will remember her own coronation day and so do the rest of us, old enough to have been around at the time. No doubt these local youngsters will remember dressing up.
