Pupils from Llanfoist Fawr and Llanvihangel Crucorney primary schools created 265 Union flags and cards to help residents celebrate the Coronation of King Charles III.

The kind gifts were delivered along with afternoon tea to people in the community by the Monmouthshire Meals team across the county on the day of the coronation.

 Monmouthshire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Education, Cllr. Martyn Groucutt said: “I am so impressed by the creativity and the kindness of the pupils.

"Each card and each flag was beautiful and I am sure brought a great deal of happiness to every resident that received one.


"The afternoon teas looked so delicious – what a lovely surprise.

"Well done to everyone involved!”
