The first Alderley Edge May Queen was Gwen Leah, while the first Rose Queen was Muriel Lees, back in 1922 (when the local council first suggested a bypass and the Festival Hall was still being planned). There may have been 50 or more Rose or May Queens since Gwen and Muriel, so the May Fair Committee is now aiming to find as many as possible.
The committee has organised a fleet of vintage and classic cars to transport former Queens and Princesses through the village in the London Road Parade on Saturday 19th May, so the search is on.
If you know a former May Queen, Rose Queen or Princess (or if you were one yourself) then please get in touch using firstname.lastname@example.org. All former Queens and Princesses will receive special treatment in our parade on 19th, and ringside seats as we settle down together to watch the Royal Wedding in the park at midday.
