Coronation News - 6 May 2023

St Dennis Working Men's Club



On the 6th May we held our celebrations to commemorate the Coronation of King Charles III in the village of St Dennis.

The celebrations were held at the Working Men’s Club and included a cream tea and fair ground rides in the afternoon followed by a hog roast, silent disco and the lighting of the beacon in the evening. Approximately 250 residents attending the afternoon celebrations plus approximately 200 in the evening. We were very lucky that the sun shone on us in the afternoon so we could celebrate outside.

I would like to thank everyone who made this such a special event, the lovely people who came along in the morning to set the tables and chairs up, Working Men’s club, Clays Kitchen St Dennis Band for the brilliant music, CERL, St Dennis Fire Brigade and Mel and Tracey Richards. Without all of their help there would not have been an event. I would also thank the St Dennis Parish Council for the grant which made these events free for all. Most of all I would like to thank the residents who all turned out to make this such a successful event.

Donations received will be donated to the St Denys Bells Appeal to help to speed up the repairs of our bells which are enjoyed by everyone in the Parish. A great thanks to everyone who very kindly contributed. The total of donations at the first count was £353.20 with more donations received since then. The full figure will be posted next month.

Coronation mugs were available on the day – we still have a small supply of these mugs (pictured below) which can be requested by telephoning me on 07464120377 or emailing to These mugs aren’t being offered for sale, however, if you wish to make a small donation to the St Denys Bells Appeal it would be appreciated.

Very kind regards – Julia Clarke
