17 pictures looking back at Ford May Queen crowning ceremonies over the years
The annual crowning of the Ford May Queen may have been cancelled due to coronavirus but now is your chance to look back on highlights from the past.
We have compiled 17 pictures showcasing the picture-perfect tradition on the village green in front of the Lady Waterford Hall.
The annual event takes place on the first Friday of May, with the oldest girl at Hugh Joicey CE First School being crowned queen.
In mythology, the May Queen is a symbol of the stillness of nature around which everything revolves. She stands for purity, strength and the potential for growth.
