Rose Queen Festival at Owston Ferry

EPWORTH’S High Street resident Peter Davies, who supplies our weekly word search, has found a gem of a picture at home.

He told the Bells/Advertiser: “I came across this photograph recently. The church in Owston Ferry used to hold an annual Rose Queen festival.

“The children at St Martin’s School elected a Rose Queen and her attendants and the queen were crowned at an annual field day.

“Although it was often held on the church field, on this occasion, the event was held on the school’s playing field.”

Anyone that has nostalgia photographs to share with our readers should email or pop into our surgery at Keith Clough estate agents on Thursdays between 2-4pm.
