Chance to be royal for a day

Have your say

Have you always dreamed of being part of Spalding Flower Parade and waving to thousands of people as you ride around the town?

The Lincolnshire Free Press and Spalding Guardian are, for the last time, looking for a perfect pair to be royalty for the day as the flower parade’s Prince and Princess.



This is the 16th year of the competition to find a boy and girl to play key roles in this year’s event on Saturday, May 4.

The winners in 2012 were Jordan Cunningham, of Holbeach, and Milly Hitcham, of Whaplode St Catherine – but it could be you who wins a new bike courtesy of Gibbons Cycles, Spalding.

The latest youngsters to enter are Dominic Cunningham (seven) of The Brambles, Holbeach, and Jade Lilley (eight) of Beck Bank, Quadring Fen.

Dominic is a pupil at Fleet Wood Lane Primary School, Fleet, while Jade goes to Clough and Risegate Community Primary School, Gosberton Clough.

If you are aged between six and ten by the date of the parade and live in the newspapers’ circulation area, just fill in the form opposite and send it in with a photograph of yourself.

The closing date for entries is noon on Thursday, February 14 and judging will take place at the Fun Farm, Weston, on Tuesday, February 26, from 5pm to 7pm.
