CHILDREN at an Overton school are celebrating the King’s Coronation in style, thanks to more than 60 crowns and craft packs donated by a developer.

Overton Church of England Primary School children decorated and drew portraits of King Charles III using the packs donated by Bewley Homes, which has started building new homes in the village.

Headteacher Fiona Wyeth said the children enjoyed the whole experience of creating their own crowns and drawing pictures of the King.

“Children of all ages love craft projects and this heart-warming initiative has really helped them have fun and be involved in this historic event in their lives,” said Mrs Wyeth.

“Thanks to Bewley Homes for coming up with the idea and donating the crowns. We’re sure the children will be wearing their crowns with pride during the Coronation weekend.”

Bewley Homes’ sales and marketing director, Elaine Stratford, said the community-focused housebuilder wanted to mark this once-in-a-generation event with a fun and memorable event for the children who go to school very close to its new development in the village. 

Elaine said: “It was a real joy to see the children have so much fun.

“We work closely with the communities where we are building homes and the King’s Coronation seemed the perfect opportunity to work with some of the younger children in Overton on a creative project while also celebrating an important event in our country’s history.”
