There was a break with tradition for the crowning of the Rose Queen at St Peter’s Church, Salesbury.

Instead of having a brass band, the local community were entertained by Chorley Samba band – Sambafriq, who led the procession through Wilpshire and Salesbury and ensured there was lots of dancing along the route! Rose Queen Kitty Davies was supported by her attendants Alice, Maisie, Grace, Olivia and page boy Joshua. A summer fair was held at Salesbury School following the crowning service.
