Coronation newsletter 19- month of May 2023

In the scaffolding

The scaffolding around the basilica is losing height every day. This is necessary because in June new scaffolding will be erected on the Grand Place : namely, this one for the evening game stage. Scaffolding is also at work elsewhere to install the street decorations. And what about the many rehearsals of the procession groups. They too, figuratively speaking, are in scaffolding. The hard work of so many enthusiastic Greater Tongans will undoubtedly bear fruit during the Coronation Week. Already, a very big merci for everyone's efforts to make it a wonderful Coronation celebration together.#search connection is put into practice here! Enjoy reading and watching the 19th Coronation Newsletter.
