Bramley Baths marked the King’s coronation with the planting of an olive tree in the community garden as a symbol of peace and tranquility.
The tree was planted by Deputy Lord Lieutenant Kevin Sharp as part of a Coronation Big Lunch event, which was attended by more than 160 people.
Attendees enjoyed fun swims, arts and crafts, plenty of food and even a bit of sunshine in the community garden at the side of the Grade II Listed Edwardian baths, which this year is celebrating 10 years of becoming community led.
Mr Sharp spoke of his fondness for Bramley Baths. He told the crowd: “We think you are all really special and it is fabulous to have a community garden like this where people can come in, relax, pick fresh food and utilise for themselves.”
He read a letter from King Charles, in which the monarch spoke of his gratitude to all families. neighbours and friends for coming together.
