THE search is on for Fernhurst’s May Queen 2014, for which any girl aged between ten and 16 living in the parish is eligible.
Not only is a May Queen needed, but also four attendants and another to support last year’s retiring May queen.
The queen will be selected in early March in plenty of time for her to choose her dress and practise for the big day, Sunday, May 18 when the the May Queen’s procession leaves Nappers Wood for the recreation ground where she is crowned and then opens the Revels.
The event is almost a century old and several past May queens come back year after year to relive their day.
Anyone who would like to be considered for May queen or an attendant should contact Sandra Skelton on 01428 480278 or 07802 464 790 before the end of February.
