A COMMUNITY centre is planning a right royal knees up to celebrate the Queen’s coronation.

Youngsters who attend after school clubs at Jutland Road Community Centre in Seaton Carew ward are busy working on ideas for the party to which everyone in the area is invited.

It will take place on Sunday, June 2, to mark the 60th anniversary of Her Majesty’s official coronation.

Seaton councillors Paul Thompson and Cath Hill are also working with organisers to help make it a day to remember.

The event will have carnival rides, a bouncy castle, cheer leading display, family games and lots of stalls.

It will also incorporate the national Big Lunch event bringing local neighbours together to have lunch in an act of community, friendship and fun.

Other attractions are set to include a soft play area and ball pool for toddlers, adults’ alternative therapies, crafts, face painting and visit from a fire engine.

It has been a busy time at the community centre recently with a variety of activities for residents of all ages.

It is after the Owton Fens Community Association (OFCA) received funding from the National Lottery and Greggs Foundation to help bring people together.

Children from after school clubs recently welcomed the arrival of two chicks hatched from eggs the youngsters helped to incubate.

Three cute spring lambs were also named by the children at a party before they were given a new home at a farm at Sumnmerhill.

The after school clubs run every Tuesday and Thursday for children aged six to 11.

Other successful events run by staff and resident volunteers include computer courses for beginners every Tuesday from 12.30pm-2.30pm, a job search drop-in on Thursdays between 10am-1pm, and a mother and toddler group on Wednesdays from 10am-12pm.
