St John the Baptist Church, Burscough celebrated the Coronation in style by live screening the ceremony in church, complete with fizz and jam and cream scones.The celebrations continued on Sunday after the 11 o'clock service with a picnic and a vast amount of cake. Children were encouraged to decorate themselves as the king and queen and some brave parents submitted to their children's efforts. This was followed by a quiz and sceptre and spoon and balloon races where some of the more mature participants regretted pitting themselves against the young ones! Others just lapped up the sunshine and enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere. A good day was had by all Thank you to Anne Rimmer for this wonderful description of our Coronation celebrations! ...
