Rose Festival Archive 018

The very first duty of the Rose Queen, just before she is crowned, is perhaps her most important, as she stops to lay a wreath on the War Memorial at St Luke's, Goostrey, and spend a few quiet moments in prayer and reflection.

This is a very touching part of Rose Day, but, as the main part of the procession has peeled away to the school field, it is one that many people miss.

We therefore extend an invitation to all those who would like to see the Rose Queen lay the wreath, and join in the prayers led by our vicar, which should be at approximately 1.40pm on Rose Day.
