THE crowning of the 65th Marown Rose Queen has taken place.
This year’s rose queen is Sarah Asbridge, and she was crowned during an outdoors ceremony by the retiring rose queen Lucy Pendlebury.
The community event, which was organised by Marown Parish Church, was held on the Marown Vicarage lawn in Main Road, Crosby, due to an unexpected outbreak of beautiful weather.
People of all ages went along to enjoy the fun at the traditional event.
It was opened by Mary Stevenson, who gave a speech. Miss Stevenson was a Marown Rose Queen during her youth.
Crowds were entertained by the children singing, which included Twinkle Twinkle, by Lauren Gibney and Aalin Tyrer.
As well as the singing the crowds were treated to jokes from the children, which went down well with the audience.
Boys also played an important role during the day – leading the procession of the Rose Queen.
During the day there was a number of stalls, which included cakes, books, bottles and bring and buy. There was also entertainment for the whole family to enjoy.
Louise Trimble’s daughter India took part in the event. She said: ‘The crowning of the Rose Queen is always a lovely afternoon and this year they were especially blessed with glorious sunshine. It is lovely to see the young ladies dressed in their finest and the boys looking so smart. The ladies who organise the event work very hard preparing the children, running the stalls and producing the best teas and cakes on the island!’
The Rosebud Princess was Faye Pendlebury.
A raffle was held and afternoon tea was also available on the day.
