Looking Back, May 5 2011

editorial image

THESE pictures are from a coronation party of the queen in 1977.

The pictures were taken in Roper Close, Rugby, and were provided by Ginny Hunter, who is wearing a crown in the lower picture. Do you know any of the youngsters involved?

In the same year, Regents Place was opened as Jubilee Gardens for the Queen’s Silver Jubilee by Cllr Gordon Collett, Mayor of Rugby.

Three other sites were also opened at the same time to celebrate the jubilee: St Andrew’s Gardens, Richard Lovegrove Adventure Playground in Jubilee Street (Jubilee Recreation Ground), and Avenue Road.

Do you have any pictures of royal celebrations in Rugby?

If you have a picture suitable for Looking Back, send it to the Rugby Advertiser, 2 Albert Street, Rugby, or email it to pete.horton@rugbyadvertiser.co.uk.
