Carnival Royalty announced

FROMECarnival has chosen its Carnival royalty, as the town gears up for the big event on Saturday 22nd September. 

Laura Evans, aged 16, has been crowned as this year’s Carnival Queen. Her attendants are Jessica Davies, Nadine Keniston, Kayleigh Davey and Kelly Pleasants.

Charlotte Brint, aged 14, is the Carnival’s Miss Teenager, with Sasha Stamford as her attendant. The Carnival Gran is Sharon Scott.

The Children’s Queen is Tamsin Ratcliff, and her attendants are Alyissa Lucas, Chelsea Lacey, Leanne Evans, and Lauren Garrett.

Frome Carnival’s June Barnes said, “We had a healthy number of entries for the Carnival Queens, although the children’s entries were down. I thought all the entries were very good, and it was obviously very hard for the judges to choose! The ones that were chosen are absolutely delighted.

“We now have lots of different things coming up, such as our pram race, quiz, bingo, and duck race. Hopefully people will support us so we can put the carnival on.”

Last weekend also saw the Carnival Fun Day take place in Victoria Park, with stalls and attractions including a skittles competition and baby competition.
