Carlin How Carnival Queen 1953

In 1953, Carlin How held a Carnival  to celebrate following the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II; pictured we have Coronation Queen Ann Seymour (on the right with the sash) and her attendant and friend Moira Smith . The event was held on the football field near The Bullet on Kilton Lane. Ann tells the Archive: “I went to school with Moira’s brother, Derek Smith.  I would love to hear from anyone who remembers Moira and Derek, or if anyone remembers this carnival”.
