The annual crowning of the Wallington May Queen took place last weekend.
Annabel Jones, 9, became the 111th girl to receive the title at a ceremony on Saturday, May 3.
The tradition started in 1902 and begins with a procession through the town.
Girls join the group at 3-years-old as ‘fairies’, before graduating to ‘attendants to the May Queen’ a year later.
They then go on to become crown bearers before taking on a role as a banner bearer.
The girls then act as ‘princes’, and becoming eligible to be a May Queen at 9-years-old.
Annabel, who lives on Carew Road in Wallington and is a pupil at Bandon Hill Primary, lead a troop of 35 adults from Wallington Green to Wallington Town Hall.
Once she he arrived at the hall she was crowned by her grandfather Harry Jones.

"She did a brilliant job on the day and gave a lovely speech at the end.
"She looked beautiful, all the girls did."
The procession began at 12.30 and finished at 1pm.
