Lymm May Queen Festival 2008

Lymm May Queen photographs:

Lymm May Queen was celebrating 60 years of celebrations for 2008. Some of the past May Queens were taking part this year to celebrate the theme of Historical events over the past 60 years.

The village centre looked very festive with flags adorning the buildings, bathed in beautiful sun shine. The parade went through the village cheered on by a great crowd turn out of local support.

Lymm Cruising Club held a parade of decorated narrow boats which sailed through the village before the main parade started.

This year the parade included local Primary School floats, Lymm Jubilee W.I., Royal British Legion, Thelwall Morris Men, Chinese Dragon, Eagle Brow Brownies, Lymm Churches Together, May Pole Dancers, Saracen’s Head, The Gallery Salon, Various Dance Troops, Warrington Brass Band, ATC, Bootle Concertina Band and the Dixie Band. The parade was led by Peter Powell Lymm’s Town Crier.

The crowning ceremony took place on the May Queen field. There were plenty of local stalls, fair ground attractions and refreshments. Something for everyone including a chance of a donkey ride!

The Lymm May Queen this year is Hayley Billington who is 13 years old and attends Lymm High School. Peter Powell Lymm’s Town Crier had been chosen to perform the crowning ceremony.

The Lymm Rose Queen this year is Antonia Willis who is 8 years old and attends Cherry Tree School. Yvonne Cook performed the Rose Queen crowning ceremony.

The Arena on the May Queen field, this year was sponsored by Sexton’s Bakery in memory of Sid Sexton.

The day was a huge success, thanks to everyone for all their hard work and financial support from all the May Queen sponsors, also all the locals for making the day one of the best!
