Big tent keeps everyone dry for Rose Queen!!!
What a shame the weather was so wet. The 90th Rose Queen celebration was a wet one to say the least but it certainly didn’t spoil the event or the enthusiasm of the former and present Rose Queens who assembled for this great anniversary!! Well done once again to all the organizers as well as everyone who turned out to support the event.
Working on long range weather forecasts we decided to put up two small marquees to ‘house’ our Organic Pig Roast, Barbecue, Outdoor bar and Ice Cream cart as well as many visitors from the rain. The Mobberley Wobbly Ale flowed as well as Tatton’s aptly named ‘White Queen’ Ale.
Pork and crackling Baps with Lloyds gorgeous apple sauce went down a storm (literally!!) and our Angie did a great job on barbecue with Rhug estate sausages and Locally made lamb burgers!!! Mr Softy himself….James, our deputy, here at the Bulls Head, sold a number of ice creams to excited children while Rachel and Helen held everything together!!!
Mary the owner with Sophie and Fliss (our other deputies) got everything ready while Tim and Lloyd carried the 90 kilogram pig from the prep kitchen to the roaster…boy was he heavy!!!!
The decision is to do the same every year following the feedback from all our customers!!! Let’s hope the sun shines a bit more next year!!!!
