It was a packed house at the Lord Mayor and Deputy Lord Mayor’s Coronation Tea Party yesterday afternoon as 400 local people came together to have fun while celebrating the upcoming Coronation of His Majesty The King and raising over £2,000 for charity.

Taking place at the Seagoe Hotel in Portadown, the special occasion saw young and old enjoy a cup of tea, some cake and sing along to feel-good tunes from live performers Alan Crawford and Clara Wilson, helping get everyone into the spirit ahead of the Coronation this Saturday.

Speaking about the event, joint hosts Lord Mayor, Cllr Paul Greenfield and Deputy Lord Mayor, Cllr Tim McClelland said:

“It was our absolute pleasure and honour to host yesterday’s Coronation Tea Party and to see so many people join in the celebrations in the lead up to this once-in-a-lifetime historic event. We are especially grateful for everyone’s kind donations to this year’s Lord Mayor charities, B Positive and Southern Area Hospice, your generosity never goes unnoticed and will go a long way in helping support and sustain the amazing work these local organisations do!”
