Mellor S. Mary’s Church and Primary School Rose Gala – Saturday, 9th June 2018

Post date: May 14, 2018 4:49:34 AM

This year, 2018, sees the merger of two important events in the village of Mellor – The Rose Queen Festival and the School Gala Day.

Members of St Mary’s Church and FOSMs are working together to ensure that the best of both events are combined so that the day is memorable for all, especially the children.

The Rose Queen, Emilia Dunn will be crowned at a service in church at 11.00am by her aunt, Alison Ryan, before taking part in a Procession of Witness around the village, with her attendants, Matilda Dunn, Georgia Wells, Georgina and Holly Batty. The Retiring Queen, Alannah Slater with her attendants Jessica Wells, Charlotte Dawson-Smith and Lara Book; and the visiting Rose Queens from Salesbury and Langho will also be present.

At the moment we are still trying to find a band to lead the procession and everyone is invited to join in by walking with the Church Banners which will be carried by parents and children from church and school.

On arrival back at school Emilia will carry out her first duty as Rose Queen by opening the Gala.

Entrance will be by donations (buckets will be shaken).

There will be the usual stalls and attractions in and around the school with refreshments and the Barbeque.

Everyone is invited to take part and enjoy this very special day for all members of Church & School in Mellor.
