Solihull students get crafting for colourful Coronation

Solihull Editorial 14th Apr, 2023   0

SCHOOLS and groups around the West Midlands are busy creating colourful bunting ready to display from May in the lead up to The King’s Coronation on Saturday May 6.

The King’s Bunting Project has been taken up by hundreds of groups keen to make an impressive colourful celebration for miles and miles across the region.

Schools, colleges, community groups , businesses and other organisations are crafting away in preparation and to make the historic event particularly spectacular for all to see.

The Lord-Lieutenant for the West Midlands, Sir John Crabtree OBE, said: “The King’s Bunting Project has really taken off in the West Midlands.

“Many schools and groups have decided to use sustainable and environmentally friendly materials for the bunting to reflect The King’s interests so we are encouraging everyone to take up the challenge and do the same. “

Solihull Sixth Form College, one of the colleges in Summit Academy Trust, has been filmed creating the bunting.

It was Vince Green who is involved in the Trust and Mark Mitchell, the head of Balsall Common Junior School, who had the idea to take up the project using sustainable materials.

If you want to join in The King’s Bunting Project simply register your organisation with the West Midlands Lieutenancy either on Twitter, Instagram or Facebook with the hashtag #TheKingsBunting or email [email protected].
