The Carnival Court for 2017 was selected at the Carnival Disco on 16th March.

Chloe Myford has been chosen as Senior Princess, and the Attendants are Summer Parsons and Lillie Drake. In the photo below, Chloe is in the centre with Summer on the left and Lillie on the right.

The Judges were (L-R on photo) Rebecca Marsarla (Gingerlily Flowers), Cllr Carol Chambers (Carnival Committee), Town Mayor and Mayoress Cllr Steve & Mrs Ann Cotter, Alicia and Alison Taylor (Doreens School of Dancing).

Carnival Committee Chairman, Mark Freeman, commented “It is a shame that no entries came forward from the older age group, so we did not choose a Queen or King. However, the younger age group provided very strong competition and we felt it was appropriate to select a Senior Princess and two attendants. We were pleased that Chloe,Summer and Lillie were chosen, and look forward to them being the key part of our Carnival procession on 8th July.

We are grateful to the judges for their efforts, to the Royal British Legion Club for the venue, to the Digital DJ for the disco and the generous donors of prizes for the winners. On the night they all received DAB radios donated by Tesco, balloons donated by Perfect Parties, flowers donated by Gingerlily Flowers and photo sitting vouchers donated by SF Digital."
