More than 1,000 people attended the May Fayre, in Petts Wood, on Monday where a new May Queen was crowned.
Katherine Madder continued a 200-year-old English tradition by taking on the role, and nominated the British Heart Foundation as her chosen charity.
The fayre, at Petts Wood Hall, in Petts Wood Road, featured maypole dancing, live music, children’s rides and community stalls.
Orpington MP Jo Johnson, who attended the event, said: “The Petts Wood May Fayre is always a lovely event and yesterday it lived up to its billing. It was a fabulous day and I offer my congratulations to all those who worked so hard to make the day such a great success.”
Margaret Hoare, Samantha Nemeth and Ralph Ambrose organised the day, with the help of volunteers from the Petts Wood War Memorial Trust, Petts Wood Churches Together, Petts Wood and District Residents’ Association, the Rotary Club and the Petts Wood May Queen Group.
