School pupils receive council keepsake of King’s coronation

Alnwick Town Council is presenting a commemorative Coronation mug, marking the coronation of King Charles III, to the pupils of all the town’s primary schools and Barndale House School.

Mayor of Alnwick Councillor Geoff Watson commented “We hope the school pupils will treasure this small keepsake of a historic event. Inside the mug we have placed a packet of wildflower seeds from Alnwick In Bloom and some chocolate coins.”

“Many of us ‘oldies’ still have a memento from the late Queen’s coronation and by presenting these
mugs we are continuing this tradition for the next generation.”
