Post date: Jun 13, 2011 4:10:16 PM

Bravo Rita Gorman - who managed to contact 59 out of the 60 former Rose Queens and all the Rose Bud Queens to invite them to the Diamond Celebration of the Rose Queen Festival last Saturday (11th June 2011). 39 girls/ladies were able to join us - sitting together in church, walking in the Procession of Witness and meeting for refreshments in the school.

With the enormous help of Ron Hak, Rita has put together a DVD '60 Years of Rose Queens in Mellor' using photographs supplied by many of the former queens and their families.The DVD is available for sale at £5 - all proceeds to church maintenance - from Rita. At the time of writing, she has sold or

had orders for 20 of them - well done!
