Hayes Common 2002

The day started at 1.30 with a picnic whilst Katy Ford and her attendants lined up with all the others May Queens from across London, ready for the parade through the streets of Hayes.

At 2pm the procession set off, and was led by the Whitgift School Marching Band, with the London May Queen, Sallyann Townsend-Know, next and the rest of the May Queens following on behind. The band from TS Endeavour brought up the rear.

Half way round the route, the London May Queen stopped at the church to be crowned, before re-joining the back of the procession. Everyone then returned to Hayes Common for the presentation of gifts, the scattering of flowers and country dancing.
