YNYS Môn MP Virginia Crosbie attended several events across Anglesey to celebrate King Charles III's coronation.

She went to Caergeiliog Foundation School’s Coronation Party to present commemorative medals to pupils as she kicked off a weekend of visiting events across the island.

The school in Lon Bach invited Mrs Crosbie, who delivered some of her free Union Flag bunting ahead of the day to help everyone get in the mood at the 'street party' style event on Friday.

The MP presented the medals and packs of wildflower seeds to students.

The school then presented her with a medallion keepsake and asked for it to be taken to Westminster.

“This brilliant lunch really kicked off a whole host of coronation events for me as I visited quite a few over the weekend,” said Mrs Crosbie.

“Thank you to the school for inviting me. I had a great time celebrating the coronation of King Charles III with them surrounded by decorations, including my bunting, along with lunch and cakes all in a great atmosphere.

“It was a very special start to a special weekend and I know the pupils will cherish their medals and go and plant their wildflowers to help the environment and make a lasting legacy.”

Head Richard Williams said: “Our pupils enjoyed this historical event. We would like to thank Virginia Crosbie for visiting the school and presenting commemorative medals to the pupils."

Over the coronation bank holiday weekend, the MP went to Garreglwyd nursing home in Holyhead and Bryn y Môr in Nebo where Amanda Rutter and staff had organised an in-house street party for the home.

Before going to events in Llanfaes, Llangoed and Llangefni she dropped into Market Hall in Holyhead on Saturday where the Holy Island Landscape Partnership were entertaining children with a coronation-themed craft and education workshop.

On Sunday, she went to the Coronation Big Lunch at Rhosneigr Village Hall and Llaingoch community party.

On Monday, she visited Beaumaris to check out the fabulously decorated displays at Beau’s Tea Rooms, Amlwch to celebrate at a party for the Amlwch Army Cadets and Rhoscolyn village party in St Gwenfaen’s Hall.

“Many of the events I visited had taken up my offer of free Union Flag bunting and I am delighted that more than a mile of it will have been decorating Ynys Môn over the weekend, alongside Y Ddraig Goch,” the MP added.

“Thank you to everyone who organised events.”
