Fun of the fete as vil­lage rose queen crowned


AROUND 300 peo­ple joined in the fun of the 86th Gawsworth Rose Queen Fete.

Fam­i­lies and chil­dren en­joyed a host of en­ter­tain­ments in­clud­ing a samba band, a minia­ture steam train, a bouncy castle and a beat the goalie game at the event at Gawsworth Pri­mary School on Satur­day.

There was also a pro­fes­sional dog show for pet lovers, a co­conut shy, a lux­ury tombola, craft stalls and a se­lec­tion of tempt­ing cakes to try.

For the adults there was also a beer tent and a bar with a bar­be­cue for ev­ery­one.

For­mer Rose Queens who at­tended with their sash from last year’s event were given free en­try and a com­ple­men­tary cup of tea.

Rachel Fre­ga­pane, mum of Rose Queen Scar­let, 11, who was at­tended by Year 6 pupils Con­nie and Lucy, said: “It was a fab­u­lous day. The weather held out for the pa­rade and I was so proud to see Scar­let crowned Rose Queen.”

Year 6 pupil Sammy was the crown bearer for the day with another pupil from Year 6, Euan, tak­ing on the role of cape holder.

Laura Lewis, who works at the school, said: “There was an amaz­ing at­mos­phere on the day and it brought the whole school and the vil­lage to­gether.”
