Tomorrow Market Lavington will be ‘en fête’ as we celebrate our Queen’s 90th birthday.
But here we look back to fun in Coronation year – 1953 with a news cutting.
We see some of the younger entrants in the Carnival held that year. Dressing up was always a part of village events, for young and old. We rather suspect the polar bear outfit was a tad warm in June but the wearer, with hands muffed, manages to look cold. Those with visible faces look nervous. Did they not like the camera or was there a judge there as well.
We’ll look forward to seeing you tomorrow down in the Community Hall and the museum which will be open throughout the day.
