Hayfield youngsters are being invited to get involved in the village’s annual May Queen event.

The 88th annual May Queen Festival will take place on Saturday May 9 and organisers are now looking for royalty to represent the village at several local events, carnivals and courts of queens.

Children from Hayfield are being invited to enter for the titles of May Queen, Junior Queen, Princess and Rosebud.

Children are only expected to attend three events over the summer months.

Anyone interested should contact Zoe Wild on 07735 094166 or email zwild7@gmail.com. The chosen royalty will be crowned on carnival day.

Hayfield May Queen Festival Committee works tirelessly throughout the year to organise and raise money to put on each year’s carnival event. Proceeds raised on the day and from programme sales are donated back to local community organisations and groups.

The theme for this year’s carnival is space, so organisers are looking forward to welcoming Trekkies and Whovians as well as budding Patrick Moores.
