Bramshott and Liphook Parish Council is organising a Picnic and Village Fete at the Liphook Millennium Green to celebrate King Charles III’s coronation on Sunday, May 7 from midday to 6pm.

Peter Stanley, executive officer of the parish council, said: “The aim is to bring the community together, being mindful the event is affordable for all and environmentally aware.”

Mr Stanley added the council would like to encourage groups, schools, organisations, local people and businesses to get involved.

He said: “Anyone wishing to participate needs to be aware this event is not for profit – money can be raised for local charitable organisations, preferably within the parish.

“We plan to provide a stage for entertainment by local people who love to perform. More details will be available soon, but if you know someone who might like to show off their talent, let them know.”

Anybody interested in showcasing their talents, or groups who would like to promote their organisations at the event, should email [email protected]
