Calling former Flower Queens

1
Have your say

Organisers of Spalding’s final Flower Parade in 2013 are still hoping to get in touch with former holders of the Flower Queen title.

It is hoped that as many as possible will be able to get together to take part in the parade’s swansong and enjoy the VIP civic lunch.

The parade is being held for the final time in May with the theme of Thanks for the Memories.

It is hoped that a new event, which could reflect the area’s food heritage, will replace it in 2014.
