On the 2nd June 1953 the whole country celebrated the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth - a joy filled time for many that had emerged from the war and years of rationing.

Braithwell and Micklebring organised a day to remember making floats and having a procession through the villages with fancy dress competitions at the school.

If you have any memories or photos from this time then let us know and we can add them to our page...


We have the Souvenir Booklet with pictures and all the action - which you can see by clicking here - Souvenir Brochure
