Another year gone and tis time ter start the search once more!

Each year around this time, the Shire decides which of the brave lasses who come forward, will be the 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 the Queen is renewed each year. Otherwise we'd be keeping the same lass and no give others the chance.

So... Are ye a lass of the Shire? Do ye have what it takes ter be Queen of the May?

Or do ye know of someone who would do the Shire proud? If so, then don't delay! Send them names ter me - Nannie - and they could be the lucky one!

Over the years we've had many a fine Queen of the May. Miss Acorne, Miss Amorey, Miss Lina, Granmama and our current holder Miss Pennyroyal. Ter name but a few. Will ye be joining their ranks?

So lassies, dust off yer best frocks and pluck up yer courage - a wee dram may help with that one - Drop me a message via the Quick post - time ter earn yer ale again lads! - Or just let me know at either the Green Dragon or market, yer canna miss the hat!

Now ah hope ye lads are no thinking yer off the hook! Oh no!

If ye think ye have what it takes ter be King o' the may and follow in the path of KIng gone afore ye. Then pass yer name ter me and we'll see what we see.

The search has begun to find our next rulers of the May, all are invited ter try if ye havena held the title before. Once we have some willing vict... er candidates, their names will be announced and voting will begin.

Ye have till the 16th of April, ter get those names in, then voting will open and the race begins in truth.

The event is open to all hobbits of the Shire and beyond. The new Queen and King will be announced at the party on May Day (1st May)
