Commemorate the Coronation with Yorkshire Coast CRP and Friends of Goostrey Station

Community rail partnerships and station groups are gearing up to celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III in May.

The Yorkshire Coast CRP will be holding a coronation celebration event at Bridlington Station on Monday 8 May, 10am-12pm.

The Partnership will be serving refreshments to guests and the public, and the Driffield Ukulele band will be performing two half-hour music slots. The band have written several songs about the Hull to Scarborough line especially for the Partnership and will be performing these as part of their set on the day.

Attendees on the day will be invited to help the Yorkshire Coast CRP choose their favourite of the songs, with the winner being used as the music in an upcoming promotional video for the line, to be created by Hymers College students in Hull as part of their voluntary work for the NCS Award.

You can keep up to date with future news, projects, and events from the Yorkshire Coast CRP via their website.

The Friends of Goostrey Station will be marking the Coronation of King Charles III by running a free, hands-on workshop at Goostrey Art Studio.

On Monday 8 May, professional artist Debbie Goldsmith will be leading a workshop where local residents are welcome to join in making and decorating clay stepping-stones.

Participants will be making tiles and using natural materials and letter shapes to create their own special messages to commemorate this historic year. The Clay Studio in Manchester will finish the pieces in their kilns, and, when they’re ready, Friends of Goostrey Station will be helping Debbie to install them in the gardens around Goostrey Station.

This will be a permanent display, so participants will be able to visit their work of art at any time.

The workshop at Goostrey Station will be part of The Big Help Out, a national campaign encouraging members of the public to try volunteering for themselves and have the opportunity to make a difference in their community. 

During the workshop, you’ll be able to find out about the work of the award-winning volunteer group, Friends of Goostrey Station, and how to get involved yourself.

No previous experience is required to attend the workshop on Monday 8 May – just drop in between 11am and 1pm, and all materials will be provided.

If you have any questions about the project, you can contact Debbie on goostreyartstudio@yahoo.com.
