This year’s Pill Rag king and queen have been crowned in the lead up to the annual family fun day.

Leah Case and Olly Rush have been chosen to represent the village as this year’s Rag king and queen, while Becky O’Callaghan and Katie Broad will step in as the queen mother and lady in waiting respectively.

Pupils from Pill schools have also been chosen as the family’s page boys and princesses.

The royal family will hold a number of responsibilities in the lead up to the event, on the day and afterwards, including leading the procession through the village.

The ‘old-fashioned family fun day’ will see Pill Rag celebrate 98 years of running with stalls, games, food and drink stands as well as live entertainment and music.
