Crowds enjoy Weaverham Rose Fete
ALL the fun of the fair came to Weaverham on Saturday as crowds gathered to celebrate the village’s traditional rose fete.
The day began with a colourful parade of village groups, dancers and floats which toured Weaverham before the event was officially opened at Lakehouse Field.
Crowds the streets to see retiring rose queen Georgia Rae Haynes and her 2011 retinue led the procession, with new Weaverham rose queen, 14-year-old Zoe Johnson, as the parade’s grand finale.
Zoe was crowned at the field before an afternoon of entertainment in the arena.
The teenager will go on to represent the village at upcoming events and carnivals.
She plans to raise money and awareness for St Luke’s Hospice and The Stroke Society as her chosen charities during her year as rose queen.
Marjorie Gorrill, president of Weaverham Rose Fete Committee 2012, said on Saturday: “We are just so lucky with the weather and I’m so pleased it’s been good.
“The parade went off exactly on time thanks to the parade organisers, and all of the children looked so happy and all looked so beautiful.”
Visitors enjoyed music from the Liverpool Pipe and Drum Band and Northwich ATC band, as well as dancing from Elite and Quicksteps and a fun fair on the field.
