2 May 2015
Abigail Sewell, only 9 years old, was crowned Green Street Green May Queen 2015 just after 3:30pm today on The Green. There was the traditional procession along the high street, led by a marching band - not the same one as last year. The retinue marched round the green before the Queen sat on her throne and last year's May Queen, Bethany Hose, placed the crown on Abigail's head. The Mayor, Councillor Julian Benington, congratulated all concerned, despite some technical hitches with the microphones. Unfortunately my camera memory was unable to capture the entire proceedings but the initial procession is available to view online here.
