Pershore : Coronation Procession passing the Three Tuns Hotel [1937]

This photograph shows the Coronation Procession passing along Bridge Street and the Three Tuns Hotel in May 1937. Gordon Bancks, the well-known Pershore solicitor had accepted to hold office as king of the Pershore Coronation Carnival. Sitting next to him in the white dress was Evelyn Jaynes, only daughter of Herbert and Florence Jaynes, managers of the Royal Three Tuns Hotel. She had been selected as Pershore's Coronation Queen. A pupil of Prince Henry's Grammar School at Evesham and Stockwell Trinity College at London, Evelyn Jaynes was, at the time of this photograph, a member of the teaching staff at St. John's Church of England School at Worcester. Sitting to the rear of the float, her attendants were Irene Leach and Betty Overd. The carnival procession started off from Pershore Bridge at 14.30hrs and started an afternoon and evening of activities and celebrations on the cricket field, in the Church of England Schools and other locations. There was a tea for senior citizens at the Angel Hotel and community singing in Broad Street. During the late evening and early hours of the next morning there was a carnival dance at the Royal Three Tuns Hotel.

Evelyn Jaynes would be all dressed up again two years later, in August 1939, when she married Robert William Pomeroy at Pershore Abbey. By then she was a teacher at Netherton Mixed School near Dudley, from whence several of her colleagues and friends came to Pershore to be present at her marriage. The bridegroom had won a scholarship for Keble College, Oxford where he studied for four years. At the time of the marriage he was a member of the staff of the Animal Nutrition Research Institute of Cambridge University.

Herbert and Florence Jaynes had previously kept the Severn View Hotel at Worcester
