WHETHER it was a cup of tea or a glass of fizz, patriotic residents across Llandudno and Conwy jubilantly celebrated the King’s Coronation over the weekend.

Street parties were held across the county.

In Bryn-Y-Fedwen, Deganwy, neighbours and families came together to mark the occasion; money was raised for Ty Gobaith.

Dog Joe was clearly ready to take part in his own procession and was dressed up in a tall black furry hat!
