Fylde MP Mark Menzies met with Liz Moss (CEO of Heritage Trust for the North West), John Hornyak (Head Volunteer of Grounds and Parkland), Peter Anthony (General Manager of Lytham Hall) and Paul Lomax (Deputy General Manager of Lytham Hall) to plant a tree in the grounds of Lytham Hall in celebration of the King and Queen’s coronation.
At the planting, MP Menzies took the opportunity to thank all fantastic volunteers who make Lytham Hall such a great place to visit and had this message for his constituents, ‘I hope you enjoy the Coronation celebrations over the weekend. GOD SAVE THE KING!’
He also confessed that he didn’t dig the hole that the Coronation tree was planted in! The special tree to commemorate the Coronation of His Majesty King Charles III is a Dawn Redwood in its golden form. It’s Japanese name, Golden Oji, translates as ‘golden prince’.
Lytham Hall and its parkland will be entirely closed for the occasion of His Majesty the King’s Coronation on Saturday 6th May, giving all the staff and volunteers the chance to enjoy and celebrate this national occasion. The Hall will be open as usual on Sunday and Monday for this special bank holiday weekend.
