What’s Happening at Kenilworth Town Council?
Following the success of the Town’s Jubilee Celebrations, the Town Council have been working with the team at the Castle and other local groups, such as the Lions, to bring celebrations into the Town once again for the Coronation of King Charles III. English Heritage chose Kenilworth Castle to be one of just three locations being used for the weekend celebrations, and the local response to their screening of the Coronation has been fantastic. This, combined with the screening of some family friendly films, made it a fun weekend for everyone.
The Lions also arranged an alternative for their cancelled Boxing Day Duck Race, with the Mayor drawing the winning duck. Cakes were delivered by the Mayor and Deputy Mayor to local care homes and street parties over the weekend too; with local businesses also taking part in the Shop Window Competition and the Best Dressed Venue Competition.
Naturewatch Week also returned for its third year at the end of May, with some exciting new activities being added to the schedule. This week-long series of events focused on being as family friendly and accessible as possible, while getting people out and about, learning about their local environment.
Other exciting news for the Town includes it now gaining status as a Toilet Twinned Town, thanks to the hard work of the Soroptimists and the local businesses that have supported them in achieving this. The certificate of this achievement was presented to Town Mayor, Cllr Sam Louden-Cooke at the Town Assembly following her report on her civic year.
