A Coronation round-up


So many groups have been sharing the ways they've been celebrating King Charles III's Coronation over the past few weeks.

Groups have been taking part in community events, church services, volunteering through The Big Help Out and of course, using the Fit for a King resource during weekly meetings.

2nd Billericay joined together all sections and held a Coronation party for a huge 80 girls!

8th Portsmouth Girls’ Brigade members had great fun learning about the King’s forthcoming Coronation… Activities included games and the group even made a selection of cards to post to Buckingham Palace!

Over a couple of weekly meetings, 1st Measham celebrated the Coronation with a party and biscuit decorating.

At 1st Flimby, the group decorated the church windows and sent cards to the King, wishing him good luck and congratulations. The group had a small celebration together too, not the traditional afternoon tea but pizza and chip supper. The group also got involved in The Big Help Out by taking part in a litter pick. The weather was a little damp but all seemed to enjoy it!

1st Hawkwell got creative and made models of King Charles and Queen Camilla!

1st Chapel-en-le-Frith used the Fit for a King resource to help them celebrate. They also made cards to send to the King and made royal outfits from newspapers to make them feel the part when they joined together for a royal tea.

As part of the Fleet Coronation Parade, 3 leaders, 3 helpers and 13 girls from 2nd Fleet Girls’ Brigade marched down the High Street with other uniformed organisations to celebrate the big day!

1st Portsmouth made their own commemorative plates.

21st Castleford ate together, decorated crown-shaped iced biscuits, played pass the parcel and practiced plag waving to God save the King ready for the big day!

10th Derby also made Coronation cards which have now been sent off to Buckingham Palace as well as a mums and daughters car park party, where they enjoyed afternoon tea with sandwiches, sausage rolls, scones, cupcakes, cookies and of course a big pot of tea. The girls and mums did some Coronation crafts together too.

At 2nd Barnsley, GB member and their friends and family were invited to a pre-Coronation celebration night. The group played Coronation bingo, tested their royal knowledge with a quiz, made a group poster and created a wreath and finished in the true GB fashion – with cake!

1st South Woodham Ferrers made cards for the coronation of King Charles, together with a poster made by some of the older girls in the group which was put on display on the church notice board.

1st Kendal had a family red, white and blue party to celebrate the coronation and invited GB members and their families. At the party, the families were asked to make a robe and crown from materials provided in 5 minutes with some fantastic results!

Some members of 1st Kendal were also invited by the Lord Lieutenant of Cumbria to Carlisle Cathedral to be part of a large community service to mark the Coronation. Members were also invited to do the same at Derby Cathedral, with one member being asked to say a prayer during the service too!
