Celebrations

Towards the end of the Boer War, in June 1900, a Parish Meeting was called to discuss how to celebrate the coming peace.

In January 1903 the sum of 8.14.10 left over after the Coronation festivities for Edward VII was given to the Parish Council towards lighting purposes.

A Parish Meeting was called for on 25th April 1911 to discuss the celebrations for the Coronation of King George V.

Nothing was mentioned about the Coronation of King George VI, but this may have been because of the circumstances which led to his accession.
