Poor weather didn’t dampen the spirits of all who attended the Annual May Queen Festival at Slaidburn. The only dry part of the event was the taking of the photos before going into Church.

Pictured here are (from the left) Gracie Blanc, Codey Grover (May Queen), Millie Thornber, Helena Beattie, Henry Thornber (Crown Bearer), Malachy Cefai and Jude Emmanuel. Codey was crowned by Mrs Marjorie Pinder, in Church.

Despite the rain, the parade took place through Slaidburn followed by football matches by both primary and secondary school teams. Brennands Endowed Primary School would not be beaten by the weather and took their Maypole inside the village Hall and entertained all while they were having their homemade traditional teas.

Thanks go to all the parents and members of the Committee for making the day such a success despite the weather!
