Gala queen is set to be crowned

AS the annual Thorne Summer Festival approaches the all important queen is set to be selected and take up her throne at a competition tomorrow.

The finalists will be whittled down at the judging at Thorne Old Folks Centre in Church Street, from 8pm.

The lucky lady will be tasked with leading the parade at the festival that will take place on Saturday, July 30, and Sunday, July 31, in Thorne Memorial Park.

The annual event looks set to be bigger and better than ever this year with dance performances, a vintage car show and stalls and refreshments amongst the attractions.

The Thorne Memorial Park miniature railway will also be in full flow throughout the two day event. Anyone interested in having a stall or for more information about the event contact Sylvia Goldspink on 01405 812403.
