Crowds turned out to welcome the May Day parade as it made its way through the village on Monday (May 7).

The event, held in aid of Drake’s Primary School PTFA, raised £2,000, which will go towards resources for pupils.

The procession started at East Budleigh Garage before making its way into the centre of the village.

The crowning of the May Day royal family was made, with Amalia Breading named as queen. Three princesses were also named – Ottie, Lily and Lauren. Drake’s pupils then performed the traditional maypole dance.
