The Celebration Of King Charles III
Whether you will be watching the Coronation of King Charles III from the comfort of your home or celebrating with loved ones at street parties, your mobility scooter will ensure you don’t miss out on this historic event.
This is a very exciting and historic event as for many of us, this is our first experience of witnessing a coronation of a monarch. There will be lots of events happening in the lead up and during this time which will make history. Some may go to London and line the streets to be in and around the buzzing atmosphere, while others will attend street parties and have loved ones round to celebrate in the garden, hopefully in the sunshine!
Here are the events that are happening over the Coronation weekend.
