TWELVE-year-old Robin Broadhurst will be crowned Thelwall Rose Queen This Saturday (June 15) – and she’ll have her six-year-old sister Olivia as one of her attendants.
They will both be following something of a family tradition as their elder sister, Erin, 14, was Rose
Queen in 2016.
Robin said: “I was over the moon when I was nominated for Thelwall Rose Queen.
“As the theme for this year’s float’s is Disney the theme for my float will be ‘Princess Belle’ with the colour scheme in lemon, white and a touch of gold, followed by the attendants lemon and white gold butterfly themed float.
“I have chosen a beautiful dress for the occasion which I can’t wait to show everyone on the day. I have also helped to choose my attendants dresses and my mum has designed all the flowers for the occasion.“
Robin is a pupil at Lymm High School and previously attended Thelwall Junior School.
Her favourite subjects include Maths, English and French and she also enjoys extracurricular activities
such as athletics, football and swimming.
She loves reading and her main hobby is Morris Dancing – she dances weekly with Zirconia Morris Troupe in Latchford.
She regularly take part in competitions which lead to championships at the end of the year.
“ I dance with the Tiny line as part of a team and we have won many medals and trophies. I have won
Dancer and Marcher of the year for my group two years on the run.”
Robin is also a member of Ambitions Dance School in Lymm and is currently training towards taking her Grade 2 Ballet exam.
She added: “I am really excited and honoured to be chosen for Rose Queen and will look forward to seeing everyone on the day.
“Please give me a little wave and let us pray for sunshine.”
Meanwhile the Disney theme is spreading across the village with more than 20 character scarecrows currently on display.
