Crowds gathered to watch 2019 Rose Queen Gina Hewitt lead the parade with 2020 Rose Queen and King Ella Surtees and Jack Barton.

They were followed by the new 2021 Rose Queen Martha Henderson, aged 10, and her retinue Jodi, Violet, Abigail, Isla, Pippa, Freddie and Edward.

Revd Gary Lewis and his wife Jennifer crowned Martha before the unenviable task of judging the fancy dress competition.
