The whole team at Saint Bartholomew's pulled together to serve a lovely coronation lunch. Beverly managed the project with the help of Val and Geoff and Hilary, and the cooks included Colin Ashton for a lovely Coronation Quiche and tray cakes, Tony and Tricia for Coronation Chicken and Trifle, Drinks and site management by the Church wardens, a.k.a. the Davids, and contributions of one kind or another from just about everyone else!
The Coronation of King Charles III
The Coronation of King Charles III was a historic moment in the life of the British Nation, but also in the lives of people like you and me. Many little children standing on the shoulders of parents and grandparents will remember all their lives watching the gilded carriage, the flags, the beautiful princes and princesses, the magnificent steeds, the fabulous uniforms, and they will remember how their ears were filled with roaring crowds and the music of pomp and circumstance. Some of us older folk will think of Shakespeare a little differently from now on, having witnessed in the Cathedral the trivial and the high drama of royal families. But which play will we be wanting to reread first?
We had a merry and musical Christmas this year, which we celebrated, like a French wedding, over 3 days.
