Coronation Procession

Despite a forecast of rain, the rain stayed away for the procession and it became much brighter fot the Coronation.

Cake

The weather was overcast and the rain managed to stay away for the procession. This day was also the Queen's 90th Birthday, so two groups had walking floats with this theme with huge birthday cakes pulled around. Even the Royal Family attended! Some great work put into the floats by all concerned. These photos were taken in Southfield Road and Thornton Drive.
