Hundreds of people gathered on the streets of Truro on Sunday evening to watch the Lord Lieutenant’s Parade and Civic Service.

On Sunday, May 7, at 4.30pm the parade stepped off through the city centre from Lemon Quay for a Coronation Civic Service in Truro Cathedral.

The parade was led by the Kernow Pipes and Drums, the Lord Lieutenant of Cornwall Col Edward Bolitho, the Rt Rev Philip Mounstephen, Bishop of Truro, Interim Dean Simon Robinson, and Mayor of Truro Cllr Steven Webb, in his last official duty.

Also at the front was the Royal British Legion Cornwall and Truro branches.

The procession culminated on High Cross before the start of the Civic Service.

The service featured the cathedral choir, which included the girl choristers who had been invited to sing at the Coronation service in Westminster Abbey the day before.

Prior to the parade leaving the quay the crowds were entertained by Will Keating and John John Dowling as well as Seemore Gardens.
