WINSFORD youngster Paige Walker has been picked to take the starring role at Hartford’s diamond jubilee rose fete this summer.

The 11-year-old pupil of The Grange School in Hartford was chosen as rose queen by judges.

Paige will share the limelight at the fundraiser for the NSPCC on June 14 with Ellie Wilde, Fairy Queen; Olivia Newman, bouquet bearer; Harriet Scott-Worthington, Hartford Princess; Grace Barnett, Hartford Rosebud and Daniel Moore, Hartford Prince.

There are still places available for children to take part in the fete and an urgent need for helpers.

Rose fete memorabilia and gifts of raffle prizes, cakes for stalls and other items would also be much appreciated.

Anyone who can help is asked to ring Linda on 591828.
