DESPITE grey over cast skies the rain held off for the annual Stretton Walking Day.
The day started with a service in St Matthew’s Church to crown this year’s Rose Queen Milly Coxon. Her attendants were Lily Roberts, Jessica Morrison, Sophie Brogan, Jessica Whitlow and Charlotte Roscoe.
Retiring queen was Lois Hayes Harrop.
Following the crowning there was the annual walk which was lead by Warrington Pipe Band, the Rose Queen & retinue and children, parents and staff of St Matthew’s primary school as well as members of the local community.
Mayor of Warrington Cllr Karen Mundry and her consort son Jason, joined the walk and officially opened the annual summer fair, which had lots on offer- Hook a duck, Coconut shy, Beat the Goalie, Books, Toys & Craft stalls, Tombolas, Welly Lobbing, Fairground rides and much more.
