May Day success!
Lanreath May Day 2013
Lanreaths annual May Day Event was held on Sunday 5 May. This year it was organised for the first time by Lanreath Community Spirit.
The May Day procession was led by St Pinnocks Band.
The Town Crier, Andrew Scott introduced the proceedings and Mrs Billie Hayes, 93, this year’s Community Spirit Person who has served the Lanreath Amenities Committee, for 22 years, opened the Traditional May Dance, performed by 13 local children.
May Queen this year was Ellie Williams 8, May King was Matthew Rousevell 9, and the two attendants were
Richie Rollings 4, and Ruby Riley 3.
Afterwards a photo of the villagers was taken on the green.
The day, catered for all ages. The specially designed children’s garden event with carousel, bouncy castle, face painting, and children’s entertainer, proved extremely popular with both parents and children as it was affordable for all. There was a choir in the Village Hall, with Stalls and cream teas which were organised by the WI.
The evening was well supported and attended by many members of Lanreath and surrounding villages. There was a live 40s 50s Jive Band called Company B, lots entered into the spirit by dressing up in keeping with the era.
