Held in the grounds of Meadow Brook, Frouds Lane

The Aldermaston Coronation Big Picnic was a huge success, the weather was sunny and warm, we had a great turnout, children playing, lots of red, white and blue and community singing. Everyone relaxed and ate very well of some impressive picnics and home made pizza organised by 1st Aldermaston Scouts.  the Crown Inn run by the Aldermaston PTA was busy all afternoon.  The children played games including archery and loved running around the field.  The cake was very impressive topped by a crown and surrounded by coronation cupcakes.

The cakes were created by Christina Booth and sponsored by Aldermaston Parish Council.  The cake cutting was followed by a community photograph by Ed Tilsley. The children were fascinated by the drone and we were lucky to have this way of capturing the memory of the event.

We sang the National anthem led by Tiffany Ebrey on the keyboard.

This was a fantastic community event that will live long in people’s memories and a fitting celebration of the coronation.  Thank you to everyone involved or who supported us. Anyone with photos and anecdotes should feed this through to the Aldermaston History Group so that we have a permanent record of the event.

Comments from Cynthia Newman and Cathy Jones:

This great community event would not have been possible without a lot of local support and help on the day. A huge thank you has to go to everyone involved but especially to Karen Dignan for the most generous use of her field.

Well done Aldermaston.

What a wonderful way to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III and Queen Camilla.
