Coronation celebration bookmarks ready to collect from Solihull libraries

Solihull Editorial 12th Aug, 2023   0

LIBRARIES across Solihull have free Coronation commemorative bookmarks up for grabs.

There are four designs to choose from, each designed by one of Solihull’s young artists during a competition held earlier this year.

The bookmarks show different aspects of The Coronation and how Solihull celebrated it – with King Charles, crowns, corgis, cakes and crisps.

The winner of the under fives category was Malachi, aged four-and-a-half, the five to eight years category was won by Eloise, aged seven, the nine to 11 years category was won by Chloe, aged 11, and the 12 – 16 years category was won by Simran, aged 16.

The young winners and their families were invited to afternoon tea with the Mayor of Solihull, Councillor Diana Holl-Allen, and given gift vouchers and certificates.

The Mayor said: “We had some fantastic entries from children across the borough and judging was extremely difficult.

“Not only do these designs show how creative our young people are, but they are also a lovely way to document how we celebrated the Coronation of King Charles.”

To pick up a Coronation bookmark, just call into a Solihull library.

A display of the winning designs and semi-finalists is on display in The Core Library.
