Burton Joyce children give stamp of approval to King’s Coronation

"They all look wonderful, the children have done an amazing job".


Delights store and the Post Office in Burton Joyce ran a ‘Design a Coronation Stamp’ competition as part of a massive weekend of Coronation events in the village.

The competition was so popular with the local children that every inch of the shop and Post Office windows and door were covered in entries.

Two winners chosen from the hundreds of entries were named as George Caudwell aged 5 with a fabulous bright coloured picture of King Charles and an equally brilliant one of Big Ben by Freddie Winnet aged 10.

Both winners received a winner’s prize of a £15 One for All voucher and a big bag of Delight’s amazing sweets.

Nic Walsh and Julie Fowler (Co-owners of Delights) said “We wanted to run the competition to encourage the local children to get involved with this amazing event and to think about what a coronation is all about, and also to encourage the great sense of community that we have here in our village.

“They all look wonderful, the children have done an amazing job”.
