Altrincham celebrates the Coronation

As the Coronation bank holiday weekend comes to a close today, many are making the most of their last chance to celebrate the coronation of King Charles III.

Altrincham was no different: the town went into full swing coronation mode with street parties, decorations and even a red phone box displayed all in aid of the coronation.

Yesterday Hale village was bustling with people in crowns and adorned with the Union Jack.

Dancers, drinks and food stalls all lined Ashely Road as partygoers soaked up the sun.

Paula Darnbrough, 50, from Timperley, said: “It is important to mark a huge part of history with these events, the organisers have done a great job. This is a street party to remember.”

Elsewhere in Altrincham children took part in crafts where they could make their very own crown.

Stamford Quarter went all out with the decorations and even had their own competition where people could win a £50 voucher to spend for the best picture taken with the red phone box.

Apart from the festivities the Big Help Out has also been in full swing: many got involved in a range of charity work.

The Friends of Stamford Park have been involved on bank holiday Monday, with a two-hour litter picking session for anyone who wants to attend.
