Miner's Welfare Sports Ground, Children at the coronation celebrations

1953 Children with happy, smiling faces pose for the camera standing on the steps of the pavilion in the Miner's Welfare Sports Ground. They are wearing decorative hats at a celebration held to mark the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II. At this time the mining village of Swillington had a strong sense of community spirit and this comes across in the photograph. The Miner's Welfare Sports Ground is located off the A642 Wakefield Road.
