This year’s Mayday is on Saturday 5th May 2018 and Skye Dinsdale will be our new Mayday Queen.
Skye will be 12 years old in April. She attends Settle College having previously attended Long Preston Primary School. She lives in Long Preston with her mum, Julia, and her brother, Harris who is 14 years old. Her favourite hobby is dancing and she attends a local dance school. She will be performing in a concert in London at the Sadlers Wells Theatre at Easter along with 46 other girls from the dance school. She is very much looking forward to this and to being Long Preston’s May Queen.
Her other hobbies include sports. She plays in the school girls’ rugby and netball teams, and she loves skiing. She also enjoys playing her flute and looking after her 9 chickens.
At Mayday will be the traditional handicraft’s exhibition and competition. A copy of the Mayday handicraft entry form, for both children and adults, is in the March issue of the Parish Magazine.
