All Our Yesterdays: Memories from Watlington, Snettisham and Terrington St Clement featuring May Queen festivities and business celebrations





In our weekly All Our Yesterdays feature, we look back at different events reported over the years in the Lynn News…

May 2002: A queen, king, four princesses and two princes were crowned at Northwold Primary School’s annual May Queen festivities. Rosie Stutchbury (11) and Conor Clifford (10) were crowned queen and king after being elected by other pupils at the school – and they chose their princesses and princes. All the children took part in the May Day parade and there was also, singing, maypole dancing and Morris dancing. In this picture, seven-year-old Chelsea Stevenson dances through the Morris dancers.
