Barrow Hill, meanwhile, hosted an event for the community on the local playing field that featured a barbecue and bouncy castle. It has been funded via a community grant that councillor Barry Bingham played a key role in securing.

Pupils at Riddings Junior School, a part of the Embark Federation also celebrated the King’s Coronation with a tea party.
