The lovely photos below were sent to us by Ann Bacon nee Stafford.
They show her time as Rose Queen at Hyde Chapel in 1959.
How beautiful she looks !
I should imagine most girls wanted to be crowned Rose Queen.
Mrs Kitchen crowning Ann Stafford ,with Kathleen Baddely the retiring Queen.

Were you one of these girls?
Many Thanks, Ann, for sharing these photos with us!
