Coronation Party – 9th May 2023 – Volunteer Action

Location: The Hub at Fletton House, Oundle

10:30 – 12:30

The King's Coronation was celebrated in style at The Hub, Fletton House, Oundle with Volunteer Action on 9th May 2023. Thirty members of the Volunteer Action Befriending Scheme, accompanying carers attended the event, with ten Volunteers provided their support on the day – all dressed in their royal finery of red, white and blue and some outfits being fit for a Coronation itself!

Volunteers provided their support from baking a beautiful Union Flag cake and royal cupcakes to serving the very British High Tea style food to the attendees. Music played in the background and games of Coronation Bingo were played with the roar of 'God Save the King' being heard loud and clear when the game was won with prizes at the end of each round.

Photographs of Oundle Town's decorations courtesy of the Yarn Bombers were displayed on a projection for all to see (in case they had not managed to get into town to see them in person).

Lots of talking, laughter, and fun on the day, with new friends being formed during the event to help reduce rural isolation within the community.

The event was topped off with a present fit for The King himself – a packet of coronation branded wildflower seeds to take home and sow in a tub, window box or garden alike. A long-lasting memento of a day to remember.

VA would like to thank Oundle Town Council for the funds to run this event for the community – we are truly grateful for this support and the smiles from the attendees made the event worthwhile indeed.
