Lois, 10, will lead the Rose Fete 2017/18 on Saturday May 20 on Market Field.

Lois said: “I am so pleased to have been selected for Middlewich as Rose Queen and I look forward to representing our town and hope to raise a lots of money for Diabetes UK."

Joining Lois, the rest of the Middlewich royal retinue will be Annalise McKenzie, festival queen, Rose Stanton, fairy queen, Elodie Rivers, rose princess and Caitlin Sellers, rose bud.
