How did East Keswick mark Coronation Day 1953?


Mary Richards (nee Greaves) has been in touch from Dunfermline. She was Miss East Keswick 1953. She remembers it was a wonderful day in the village, there was a dance to commemorate it in East Keswick Village Hall (the forerunner of the present one which is much newer).She remembers Annie and Harry Darley having a TV and everyone crammed into their living room to try to see what was happening on the small black and white screen (just one channel then – BBC. Even ITV in the form of Granada was four years in the future). This picture shows Miss East Keswick in the sash! Mary has fond memories of the village and sends her best wishes for our Jubilee Gala Day.
