This year 2012, there will be many celebrations to mark 60 years of Her Majesty the Queens ascension to the throne. Schools and various organisations including Mansfield Museum are already making plans of how to commemorate the event – www.mansfield.gov.uk/museum
Do log on to the various local websites to discover what is happening in the Mansfield area. Ther may also be ways of helping with what they are doing.
No doubt there will also be many items of memorabilia for people to purchase and to be given as gifts.
Looking back we can see (below) just some of the commemorative items given to young people by their schools or local councils to celebrate her majesty Queen Elizabeth’s Coronation in June 1953. Have you still got yours?
