East Cleveland Villages joined in the Royal Celebrations

Moorsholm, up on the moors, and Lythe, near Whitby, made sure they were geared up to make their individual coronation celebrations a big success.

Organiser of the coronation street party at Moorsholm, Mary Heathcote, was pleased with the turnout at the village hall. Villagers tucked into a giant cake after eating their own picnic style food. Later, gluten free cakes were offered to all who still had a sweet tooth. The children were royally entertained with games and prizes and there was tombola and a raffle for the grown-ups. Meanwhile, keeping a close eye on the proceedings was a life size cardboard cut-out of His Royal Highness himself!

Over on the coast, celebrations kicked off ahead of the big event with a Farmer’s Breakfast being served by Rydale Carers. Then everyone joined in a coronation event featuring pupils from Lythe primary school.

Attending the Ryedale Carers breakfast is a great way to not only combat rural isolation but also to connect with other like-minded individuals in the community. In addition to providing delicious food, the breakfast also offers a chance to socialise and form new friendships. For those who may not have access to transportation, the charity can provide transport to and from the event. It’s a great opportunity to get out of the house, enjoy some good food, and meet new people. Plus, by attending the breakfast, you’ll be supporting a wonderful charity that does important work in the community. Don’t hesitate to give them a call at 01751 432288 to find out more about the event and how you can get involved.
