The countdown begins to Neyland’s celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III.
Pupils attending Neyland Community School have been asked to design a commemorative coin which will be handed out to all children who live in the town and are under the age of 18.
The school pupils will be presented with their commemorative coins during a special street party and parade, which will take place at a date to be announced. The winner of the commemorative design will also receive his or her prize at this event, along with the three runners-up.
Children residing in Neyland who do not attend Neyland Community School are being invited to collect their commemorative coins from the town council office which is located in the Neyland Community Hub. The date when the coins will be available has yet to be announced, however residents are being advised to keep checking the town council website or its Facebook page for further information.
Funding is also being made available by the town council to host a total of 25 street parties in the town. Each of the successful streets will receive £200 from the town council and these will include the school, the Neyland Brownies and the Neyland Youth Club.
To date, a total of 15 streets have applied for funding, and each of the parties will take place throughout the Coronation weekend.
A celebratory concert will also be held on Friday, May 5, when the Neyland Ladies Choir hosts a joint celebration to mark the King’s Coronation together with their 45th anniversary.
The concert takes place at St Clements Church at 7.30pm, and tickets are currently on sale, price £5. They can be obtained from any choir member as well as at Hubbard’s Newsagents and GTBAL, Haverfordwest. Proceeds for the evening will go to the local charity, Get The Boys A Lift.
