May Day QueenMay Day Festival 141st Year
Saturday 7th May 2005

The May Queen this year, 12 year old Naomi Jade Murphy, has taken part in the May Day every year since she was 5. She has been a Clown a Kaleidoscope, Anne of Cleves, Cinderella, Maid of Honour, Mary Queen of Scots and last year a Court Lady.

 

 

The Crown Bearer, 15 year old Ben Whittaker has also been in the May Day processions since he was 5 and is pleased to be able to carry on the tradition of his family who have been involved for many years. Both Grandfathers have been connected with the festival by providing Shire Horses to pull lorries in the procession.

 

 

Many Thanks to Paul Brereton for this years May Day photos.

May Day Poem
  'Round the maypole - round and round
Men and maids and children bound
Show'ring as they halt between
Honours on their May Day Queen.'
 
 
 
May Day Poem
  Spring, the sweet spring,
Is the year's pleasant king,
Then blooms each thing,
Then maids dance in a ring.'
(Thomas Nash)
