Festival Queen’s Page

My name is Elin Harry, I am 11 years old and I am Goosnargh and Whittingham Rose Queen 2020.

I am so excited to be an actual Rose Queen, as ever since I was a toddler I have been attending Goosnargh and Whittingham Festival, as well as Longridge and Grimsargh. I started off as a flower girl followed by a maypole dancer and an attendant but finally, I am the Rose Queen herself.

I have lived in Goosnargh my whole life and it’s such an amazing place to live as its unique and different. I have explored the grounds of this village from the top to bottom. I have played football on our village green and I attend church almost every week. I am a pupil at Goosnargh Oliversons School and the staff there are so kind and supportive that I can only dread to leave. I love doing things around the village as there are some really nice people and places here.

I also attend the Methodist church on Friday nights for a super active evening at ‘Bugz’. On Tuesdays I take part in bellringing with others at St Mary’s Church.

In my spare time I play the piano, enjoy gardening, I am a member of Longridge Gymnastics club and look after my 2 adorable pet rabbits [Ginger and Biscuit].But mainly I love all things to do with Harry Potter.

I like to think of myself as playing a role in our community and I hope that you agree. I had set myself a new year’s resolution this year to try to play a bigger role in our community and I hope being Rose Queen can help tick that box for me.
