TV star will crown May Day royalty

Northam Rectory Gardens will be filled with old-fashioned May fun.

A DAY of old-fashioned village fun will take place this May Day bank holiday weekend with a guest appearance from one of the region’s celebrities.

Merlin, of Britain’s Got Talent fame, will be crowning the May King and Queen at the Rectory Garden in Northam on Saturday.

From 10am, the garden will play host to traction engines, vintage steam launches, fairground rides and refreshments.

The children of St George’s School will also be maypole dancing and singing shanties, and a model railway display will be on show in Northam Community Centre.
