Here we are again, another May Day! If the strains of the Maypole Dancing tunes from the school playground don’t reach you, then the time of year does, that yet another Geddington custom is about to take place.

WEATHER PERMITTING ! The children will file through the churchyard and down to the Eleanor Cross by 1.30pm.

The crowning will be performed on the Cross steps by former teach, Mrs Julia Stokes.
