There were coronation platters, Sweet Caroline and Rule Britannia

It takes more than a few rain showers to dampen the spirits of the Tibbs Dementia Community.

After a last-minute change of venue from Mowsbury Park to St Andrew's Church Hall, residents turned out in force to celebrate the King’s coronation.

Over 150 people showed up, complete with crowns, Union Jack waistcoats and flags.

While they tucked into their coronation platter, guests enjoyed The Da Capo String Ensemble, with a tribute to Faulty Towers as well as a James Bond Medley.

They were followed by the Tibbs regular music makers – Andy, Geoff, Joy, Pauline and Sue – providing well over an hour of pop covers and dance hall classics.

And if that wasn’t enough – the fun continued with everyone up and dancing to Sweet Caroline and Don’t Stop Me Now before rounding off the afternoon with renditions of Jerusalem, Rule Britannia and Auld Lang Syne.
