For many of us the coronation of King Charles III in May will be the first time we have seen a new Monarch take to the throne and Great Amwell Village will be celebrating in style with a ‘Bring your Own Picnic’ on the Glebe Field, Hillside Lane (behind Great Amwell Parish Hall) on Sunday 7 May. Everyone is welcome to join us from 4–9pm and please bring a picnic to share with family and friends. Entry is free and there will be face painting, ice-cream and games of rounders. The evening will end with fireworks – a truly royal celebration.
