May Robson, who was crowned Beltane Queen in 1935, is the longest surviving Queen.

Last month, May celebrated at Riverside Residential Home, Selkirk, where she has been a resident for 27 years. To mark the special occasion, May received a visit from chairman of the Beltane Festival Paul Spence, who presented her with a bouquet of flowers, a souvenir programme, and the Peebles March Riding and Beltane Queen Festival Centenary book.

May was married to former Innerleithen police sergeant, George Robson, who passed away several years ago.
