This year’s annual Bunbury Village Day went off with a bang.
Former England footballer and village resident Earl Barrett kicked off the Brazilian-themed festivities, which featured authentic dance demonstrations, football matches and skills sessions as well as Morris Dancing.
And following yearly tradition, the day officially started with the crowning of the Rose Queen Ellie Maddock-James, helped by her attendants Emily Flynn, Megan Stansfield, Paige Edwards, Aimee Doyle, Phoebe Williams and Alice Totty.
Judges Earl Barrett, Jo Mundell and Nick Parker were faced with the tricky task of choosing the best fancy dress outfit, which was eventually won by the Cubs for the second consecutive year.
There was plenty for the youngsters to do, with slides, bouncy castles and rides, and perhaps the highlight of the day was what may well be the world’s first Segway Morris Dance.
Organiser Andy Davis said: “We’d like to thank everyone for coming, with special thanks to those who volunteered their time and help on the day.
“Finally, with most of the committee being new to the event this year, we’d like to thank Steve and Mel Mort for staying on for one more year to guide us in the right direction.”
