SEVERAL hundred people flocked to Willaston Village Fete on Sunday.

Organised by the parish council on the Lettie Spencer Playing Fields, off Wybunbury Road, the event began with a procession from the Moorfields War memorial.

The procession included the retiring Rose Queen Gladys Llewellyn and this year’s Rose Queen Ffion Owen and her attendants Greta Piasecka and Janista Harding in a 52-year-old Triumph Herald open-top car owned by Dave Parker and driven by Shaun Farrell.

The procession also included a number of other classic vehicles, along with the 26th South West Cheshire (1st Willaston) Scout Group.

Attractions at the fete included a collection of classic cars and motor bikes, a dog agility show by the Wyche Dog Training Club, music from Willaston School, a bouncy castle, bungee trampolines and children’s sprint races.

Ffion's mum Carol said: "Ffion is delighted to be Rose Queen this year after being so ill last year that she attended the fete in a wheelchair. Her nominated charity is Alder Hey. She hopes to raise money as a big thank you for helping her through her illness.”

Ffion's grandparents, Dave and Doreen Parker said; "We are so proud that our beautiful granddaughter along with her attendants are representing Willaston over the next 12 months."
