Denaby Street Secrets
Celebrations in Miniature

there seems to be a little secrecy with regard to the decorative scheme for the various Denaby Streets, but many residents have been paying into little clubs for several weeks towards the Coronation festivities celebration, and if it is possible to surpass the Silver Jubilee demonstration of loyalty and goodwill, it will be done in Denaby Main.

Several streets will undoubtedly be close for a while to traffic because it is arranged that (weather permitting), teas and jollification in the streets are the order for the great day.

The various clubs are also making special arrangements for celebrations. The Denaby Comics Club is to be suitably decorated and special arrangements made for the entertainment of the members. The same applies at the Denaby Main Institute, Annerley Street.

The celebrations at the Derry Miners Welfare Institute are on a larger scale. The Institute is to be floodlit and the drive is to be illuminated with coloured lights. It is up to have these ready for Saturday evening.

From Coronation day to Whit Tuesday, special entertainment is to be arranged each evening for the members.

The Colliery Officials Club is to be floodlit and illuminated, and here again a special Coronation celebration will be held on Saturday, May 22.

It seems a pity that someone was not made for the floodlighting of the Parish Church and St Albans. The former would have been very effective from the main road, and would have added to the extra attraction of the park lighting. Next Sunday is to be observed at the Parish Church by special Coronation services.

A civic service is arranged for 10:30 am in which it is hoped the Chairman and members of the Urban Council with all the public organisation make a special effort to attend. Also in the evening a special Coronation service will be held.

On Coronation day there will be a Parish Communion at 8 am service the children at 9:30 am. There will also be a service for children at the Epworth Hall the same time.
