Flowers for the Queen

Fete 3

This year the bouquet of flowers which the village fete queen will carry will have been provided by Ashton Hayes and Tarvin flower club in celebration of the 90th birthday of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth 11.

Flower clubs around the country have taken up this idea from our National Association to honour our Queen. Some clubs have arranged flowers in Churches, Chapels, shops and surgeries. Some did this in May on National flower arranging day and others will arrange flowers for the Queens official birthday. We in Tarvin thought it a good idea to provide our own "queen for a day" with a bouquet in honour of our Queen of a lifetime. We have chosen a royal colour scheme and the bouquet will be in red, white and blue. In previous years the attendants have also carried flowers but this year their flowers will adorn their hair. The canopy which is carried above the queen will also continue the same colour scheme.
