With the King's Coronation coming up this month, there are lots of events to get involved in. Here are some of our favourite events aimed at older people in Northumberland.
May is an exciting month this year, because King Charles II will be crowned in his official coronation.
With a whole host of star studded performances, it’s set to be an exciting day which will unite the nation in celebrating the new King!
There are lots of events being held this month to celebrate the coronation, so we’ve put together a list of our favourites.
Coronation Crafts, Ashington
If you fancy getting creative to mark the King’s Coronation, why not try one of Age UK’s many craft workshops taking place in May? Designed with seniors in mind, you could try your hand at anything from jewellery or wreath making, to creating your own fascinator!
More details of the workshops can be found here.
Coronation Party, Blyth Comrades Club
For a good old fashioned get together, why not head to Blyth Comrades Club for a Coronation Party on Monday 8th May?
With free entry for all, the party takes place between 12pm and 3:30pm.
Coronation Tea, Merton Hall, Ponteland
There’s nothing quite like a good old fashioned cup of tea, so why not head to Merton Village Hall in Ponteland to share in their Coronation Tea on 8th May?
Merton Hall serves the community in Ponteland, with a particular emphasis on uniting the older Ponteland residents. Between 2:30 – 4:30, their free tea party will offer entertainment after the success of their previous Jubilee party, so it’s not to be missed.

An Afternoon Tea by the Sea, Newbiggin Maritime Centre
If Ponteland is too far away for you, why not try Newbiggin’s Maritime Centre, where volunteers will serve refreshments, giving older people a chance to chat and reminisce, while enjoying some of the afternoon’s entertainment.

Zero Litter Day, Crofton Field, Blyth
As part of King Charles’ ‘Big Help Out’ initiative, the Friends of Crofton Field are holding a Zero Litter Day to help clean up one of Blyth’s favourite green spaces.
Willing volunteers can give an hour or so of their time to help clear the field, so that by the end of the day there is no litter left. Equipment will be provided if you don’t have any, but be sure to wear old clothes!
