Coronation Fete July 1953

In 1953, BHCHS had two reasons to celebrate. As well as joining the rest of the country in honouring the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II, the school had now been established for 15 years. The parents association, the Old Buckwellians Association and the school, joined forces to stage a "Coronation Garden Fete". A former pupil of the school, Peter Hodder, took a remarkable set of photos and we were especially fortunate to have inherited these photos from him. Peter Hodder died in January 2009 at the age of 81.
