HAYFIELD now has its very own royal family after sisters Katharine and Laura Lowe were selected for the village’s carnival royalty.
Laura will take on the role of May Queen with Katharine as Princess. Five-year-old Jessica Howard is the 2012 rosebud.
Villagers went to the polls last Saturday to select their royalty for 2012 and the May Queen committee would like to thank all the nominees who took part and everyone who voted.
Numbers were considerably down on last year but the committee have put it down to the bad weather.
Preparations are now beginning for this year’s May Queen parade, which will take place on Saturday, May 19 with the theme Olympics past and present.
