Kings Coronation – 6th May 2023
The Parish Council will be purchasing two Coronation flags, one to be raised at the cenotaph at Wentworth, and the other at the Mission Rooms at Harley.
The Parish Council will not be lighting the beacon in Wentworth, following the Governments advice.
Beacons are not to be lit as the government has advised: “The coronation will take place less than a year after The Queen’s Platinum Jubilee Beacons were lit, and are therefore anxious to ensure that the events planned for May 2023 have a markedly different look to those of June 2022.”

Unfortunately we have had to CANCEL this event due to the bad weather, its was decided that it was to dangerous due to having live electrics outside.
We will illuminating the church at Wentworth, on the evening of the 6th May 2023 at 9 pm, in celebration of the Kings Coronation, which will also include the ringing of the church bells.
We have undertaken a practice run which went really well, as you can see below.
