Lauren Large was crowned as Finedon’s May Queen, 2019, by Mrs Mary Shipton on Sunday 19th May after the Church service.
It was a special occasion as Mrs Shipton remembered being a dancer when Lauren’s grandmother, Mrs Janet Millington was crowned May Queen a few years ago!!! Several years ago. (Probably a few more than that).
Lauren was attended by the church children wearing pretty dresses, flowers in their hair and carrying hoops and as they processed into church the choir sang Greensleeves. We were then treated to the children of the choir beautifully singing two hymns of their choice directed by Bryan Chapman.
After the crowning of the May Queen the children performed a dance of May with hoops and ribbons directed by Mrs Nicola Large.
Thank you to all involved in the celebrations – team work St Mary’s! It was charming to discover the talents of our church children.
