Nothing like dining in style to mark royal occasion

Ranui rest-home residents entered a draw to have lunch with the "King" and "Queen" to celebrate the coronation. Yesterday’s table of winners, all dressed for the occasion, are (from left) Ewen Kitto, Bev Cornish, Evelyn Lowery and Des Paulin.

Activities manager Lyn Wilson said in discussions with residents about the coronation the idea of lunching with the King and Queen was suggested. Names were drawn from a hat to select the lucky four to enjoy the fancy table setting and regal company yesterday and today.

Models borrowed from Alexandra Musical Theatre were given a royal makeover including robes and crowns. They stood at the table which was set with elegant china and glassware.

Today, the coronation would be screened for residents, many of whom remembered the last one.

That would be followed by a high tea, featuring a Victoria sponge, using fine china cups and saucers, Ms Wilson said.
