Tis hard ter believe that it will be the fifth year we've held this search!

Each year around this time, the call goes out and the Shire decides which of the brave lassies who come forward, will be ter next wearer of the floral crown. From humble housewife ter hard working crafters, the race is open ter all

Now, as the leaves on the trees change every year, tis only fair that ter Queen be renewed every year, otherwise we'd be keeping the same lassies and no giving others the chance.

So... Are ye a lassie of the Shire? Do ye have what it takes ter be Queen of the May? If so, then don't delay, send yer name to me, Nannie, and ye could be the one the Shire chooses!

Over the years we've many a fine queen of the May. Miss Acorne to Miss Amorey and now Miss Pycella holds the crown, yet her time draws ter a close.

So, lassies dust off yer dresses and pluck up yer courage. Drop me a wee message via the Quick post - oh those laddies dunna like this coming month as they ken they'll have ter earn their ale! - or if ye see's me at the Green Dragon or market, let me know and ye too could be wearing the floral crown come 6th of May!



Now in years past, there's been the asking..... Why's there's no May King?

So laddies here's yer chance!
If ye think ye have what it takes ter be the first of many King o' the May, then drop me yer name and we'll see what we'll see!

Shire Rose are starting the search fer this years May Queen, and are inviting lasses of all ages, who havena held the title before ter come forward and put yer name down. Once we have some willing vict.... er candidates, their names will be listed here fer all ter see and then voting will be opened.

Ter same goes fer ye lads!
