The Crowning of the May Queen 2022

The return to May Fair was a sight to behold – having had a two year gap due to Covid spectators were out in force on Thursday 5th May 2022 to welcome back Great Torrington’s May celebrations. The weather was perfect with sunshine and warm weather and smiles could be seen wherever you looked in the town.

Great Torrington’s May Queen 2022 Cadie Hewitt can be seen in the photos below with her entourage: Lola Stevens as Crowner, Quinlan Dymond and Regan Beer as Heralds, Jessica Braund, Bella North, Dynasty Harris, Alanna Clifton, Honey Huxtable, Molly-Mae Coysh, Lola North and Isabelle Vennall as Attendants and Alex Williams as Standard Bearer – didn’t they all looked amazing. The crowds cheered and clapped as they paraded through the town square to the throne under the top Maypole where Cadie was crowned in front of a record crowd.

Well done to all of the children who took part during the day be it singing in the United Open Air Service, taking part in the English Country Dancing or the Floral Dance or dancing the Maypole – they all did an amazing job.

Thank you also to everyone involved in making the day happen, so many people work extremely hard throughout the year to make it all come together and without them it wouldn’t have been the amazing day that it was. Many thanks also to John Insull for the fabulous photos.
