Milverton

Coronation memories

Young Queen
Queen Elizabeth II

You have to be in your late 70s and 80s to remember the last coronation and what happened in Milverton. We hope some of today’s children will be able to ask you for your memories. Few people had television then so how did you see it? Were you given a mug or some souvenir of the occasion?

We also want to hear from those who lived elsewhere as all school children were likely to have been given a school project to do about the Coronation. So into drawers and trunks for photos or artefacts we could put on display.

Any such information and stories please contact Elizabeth McDowell by email lizziebiff@btinternet.com or phone 01823 400149
