The following was sent in by David Hamilton.
Over to David....
"Here are some photos of St. Mary's Rose Queen 1961/62, when I was Crown Bearer.
The Rose Queen that year was Joan Keighley, daughter of Councillor John Keighley,
who lived next to my Grandparents on St. Mary's Road. John Keighley was also at
some point, Mayor of Hyde
Joan emigrated to South Africa, and passed away some years ago. I can't name any
of the others, I wonder if any of your readers can ?.
At the end of the year I was presented with a copy of the New Testament by the
vicar, E. Billington."
