Coronation Celebration Receives a Sunny Reception in Kent

19 June 2013

A coronation anniversary event, hosted by leading retirement specialists McCarthy & Stone, saw a number of over 70’s getting the celebrations started in Kent last week. Guests attended an intimate party at Laurel Court in Cheriton, to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s Coronation.

Visitors arrived ready to enjoy the special anniversary and were entertained by vintage wartime songstress, Karen Bates, before taking a personal tour of the impressive show complex and enjoying a selection of light refreshments.

Julie Ward, Regional Sales and Marketing Director for McCarthy & Stone, said: “This anniversary is one our residents are particularly keen to enjoy with the wider community, with some remembering the original street celebrations when the Queen came to the throne 60 years ago. 

“It was a wonderful day and we were pleasantly surprised at the number of people in attendance, which goes to show that community celebrations are not weather dependent. Coming together to share a significant event with residents and visitors alike is something we are very proud to be involved with here at McCarthy & Stone.
