Could you be Spalding Flower Queen?
The search for the last ever Spalding Flower Queen has begun, with a teenager from Weston the first hopeful to be featured in this week’s Lincolnshire Free Press.
Lucy Poole (18), of High Road, especially wants to be a flower queen because this year will be the last chance anyone gets to ride in the stunning parade of floral floats that attracts people from all over the country.
The historic parade takes place on Saturday, May 4. Lucy said: “I didn’t make it to the final last year but was chosen to be a butterfly. I’d love to be flower queen. Who wouldn’t want to wear a pretty dress?”
Read why Lucy thinks she’d make the perfect flower queen and how to be in the line-up in tomorrow’s Lincolnshire Free Press, where you’ll find the entry coupon.
Preliminary interviews will be at Tulip Radio on Thursday, March 7, and five finalists will be invited to a reception at Ayscoughfee Hall on March 15, where the winner will be crowned. Closing date for entries is Thursday, February 28.
The Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian are also looking for the perfect pair to be the flower parade’s Prince and Princess.
This is the 16th year we have run this competition to find two youngsters - and one boy and one girl will pay key roles in this year’s flower parade on Saturday, May 4.
Full details and the entry coupon are also in tomorrow’s Lincolnshire Free Press. The closing date for entries is noon on Thursday, February 14.
