She was attended by: Martha Heal, Dotty Scoynes, Kensi Johnstone, Libby Childs, Millie Watson, Faye Thorne, Willow Parkhouse and Alisha Bradley. Sidney Hill and Billy Williams-Rice took the role of heralds. As well as may pole dancing and the official crowning, there was a wealth of other entertainment throughout the day. The celebrations began with an open air service at 9.45am in the Square. There was floral dancing for all and an amusing performance from Bruce Airhead.
