Emma Varey will be crowned Rose Queen and Emily Meara Rosebud at this year’s Ashton Hayes Rose Queen Fete.
They will receive their titles at St John the Evangelist Church on Saturday, July 12, at noon.
The two girls and their retinue will arrive at the church on a flotilla of vehicles which, after the crowning ceremony, will continue to the Queen Elizabeth II field.
Emma, 11, has been given the honour of opening the annual Picnic In The Park, which starts at 1pm and features live music, choir, fire engine, bushcrafts and much more.
“It’s the first time the two events have combined and the girls are very excited by the roles they have been given on the day,” said pageant organiser Gill Forgrave.
Emma, from Ashton Hayes, is a pupil at the village school who enjoys netball and athletics. She aspires to be a conservationist.
Rosebud Emily, six, also attends Ashton Hayes Primary School and hopes to become a teacher when she grows up. For the time being, she enjoys singing and loom banding.
Both girls will be the focus of the pageant when it sets off from Village Farm at 11.30am.
