Carnival Royalty 2014 Announced

22 08 2014

We have had a fantastic Carnival Royalty competition this year with the girls involved raising a combined total of over £6000! This is a brilliant total and will help ensure Carnival runs smoothly this year.
The winner of the Miss Chard contest 2014 is 13 year old Chelsie Bale. Chelsie is a pupil at Holyrood Academy and she raised money by holding cake sales, car boot sales and a number grid. Chelsie enjoys football.

Our Carnival Princess this year is 9 year old Maia Watson. Maia is a pupil of Redstart School and raised money by holding a garden party, car boot sales, yard sales, a raffle and bingo. Maia dances with the Kelly Leigh School of Dance and is a member of Ilminster swimming club.

This year we also have two Princess Attendants: Abi Winter aged 8 and Kaysha Hatson aged 7. They too held raffle ticket sales, car boot, selling cakes at there school, and held a family day at one of our local pubs.

Chelsie and Maia will be crowned at the Lordleaze Hotel at 7pm on the 11th of September.
