The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

PUPILS danced around the May­pole and wel­comed the spring with a tra­di­tional May Day cel­e­bra­tion at their city pri­mary school.

Young­sters from Wer­ring­ton Pri­mary School, in Am­ber­ley Slope, Wer­ring­ton, Peter­bor­ough, held the event on May 4 ahead of the May Day Bank Hol­i­day week­end.

Year six pupil Ge­or­gia Wade (11) was crowned as the school’s May Queen.

She, along with her at­ten­dants who were also cho­sen on the day, were given the best seats in the school play­ground to watch the dis­plays of coun­try danc­ing and May­pole danc­ing.

Par­ents of the young­sters also came along to watch the fes­tiv­i­ties.
