As part of the county’s activities to mark the 60th anniversary of the Queen’s Coronation an illustrated order of service programme was produced for a special service of celebration in Winchester Cathedral. And the organisers sought to include a photograph of Buriton schoolchildren clutching their Coronation Mugs.
The photograph is just one of almost 3,000 old images collected together as part of the Buriton Heritage Bank – an initiative which is highly regarded by County chiefs. And representatives of the Heritage Bank, coordinated by the Buriton Village Association, feel that it is quite an honour for the community to be considered in this way. “We will make sure that we display the photograph at our big Annual Exhibition on Saturday 28th September,” they added, “and maybe residents will be able to help us identify the names of all the children on the photo?”
