Knitted Coronation Post Box Crown

  • BCA - 2024.6907
  • Item
  • 10th May 2023

The post box topper was made by two talented ladies:Mandy Wileman and Lynn Smith of St. Mary's Court. It was made to celebrate the coronation of King Charles 111. Mandy also crocheted two post box toppers to celebrate Morris Dance Day. Sadly, one was stolen and the second was thrown into the road. These two stoic ladiies were not to be beaten. They crocheted a beautiful Christmas tree, which they took to the Market Square and displayed at the switching-on of the Christmas lights. This enabled them to raise £25.00 for the charity; Help for Heroes. Well done, Mandy and Lynn.

Glossary of Flunkers terms
Welcome to the club’s 1982 Dwile Flunk for the Dwile Flunk Challenge Chamber Pot. In case you are new to the game here is a glossary of Flunker’s terms to help you follow the action.

  1. GIRTERS The fielding or dancing team
  2. DRIVELLER The Stick used by the Flunker
  3. SWADGE Miss the Girters completely when Flunking
  4. DWILE A towel soaked in stale ale
  5. FLUNK Throw the Dwile from end of Driveller
  6. A WANTON A strike with the Dwile to a Girter’s head scoring 3 points to the Flunkers’ team
  7. A SHANKLE A strike to the Girter’s body between shoulders and waist scoring 2 points to the Flunker
  8. A MAWTHER A strike by the Flunker between feet and waist od the Girter scoring one point
  9. SWADGE COPER Custodian of the Driveller
    Teams will toss a coin to decide which team will be Girters in the first leg.
    Girters will form a circle holding hands.
    The first Flunker from the opposition will take his position in the centre of the circle holding the Driveller. At a given signal the musician will play and the Girters will dance round the Flunker. The musician will stop at any time and the Girters must freeze where they are. The Flunker lifts the Dwile from the pail of stale ale, using the driveller, and throws it at the Girters between the lines masking the flunking area. The Referees will record a Shankle Mawther, wanton or a swadge.
    For Shankles, Mawthers and wantons, the Girter must drink a pint straight down from a chamber pot or pour it over his own head. In the event of a Swadge the Flunker must drink or pour it over himself, The game continues until all members of both teams have flunked once. Winners will be the team with the highest points. DID YOU UNDERSTAND ALL THAT?. NEVER MIND. ENJOY IT.
