A traditional May Fair was a fitting end to the Bank Holiday weekend for residents in Wemble
The event, now in its 37th year, was held at the Church of the Ascension in The Avenue, yesterday.
Dyanna Koradia, 11, was crowned May Queen, as a procession led her to the church where the event was held.
Young girls from the third Wembley Pack Brownies danced around the Maypole to weaving traditional patterns.
The Wembley Scottish Dance society came for the first time to perform a country dancing display and encouraged the crowds to join in.
