The first coins of King Charles III reign are being minted and will be in circulation towards the end of this year.

This is combined with the news that King Charles III Coronation will be taking place on Saturday 6th May.

The Coronation will be a very special moment in all of our lives not least of all because for many of us it will be the first on our lifetime.

I know that there will be much planning for events and celebrations right across my Aldridge-Brownhills constituency ahead of May next year.
