This weekend Cromer Carnival hosted the last of it Royal Family competitions, choosing their junior attendants and prince and princess to join Miss Cromer and her senior attendant.

Last week trainee-chef Hayley Massingham was named Miss Cromer. The 18-year-old from Cromer will lead the town’s annual celebrations this August with Erin Holroyd, 17, from Aldborough, as her senior attendant.

On Friday May 2, The Cottage hosted the junior attendant’s competition which had 17 entrants.

The competition was won by 13-year-old Allyse Cook and Tasmin Beshir, 12, both from Cromer.

On Sunday May 4, The Community Hall hosted the Prince and Princess competition which was attended by over 30 entrants and their families.

The competition was won by Sol Rivett and Hannah Muirhead, both seven, from Cromer.

Organiser Michelle Hedge said: “I’m thrilled with how well attended all three competitions were and I think the judges have done an amazing job, albeit exceptionally tough this year.

“We are thrilled to welcome Hayley, Erin, Allyse, Tasmin, Hannah and Sol to the Carnival team.”

The Royal Family will feature heavily in the Cromer Carnival week which runs August 16 to 22.

Carnival Chairman Tony Shipp said: “I would like to thank all the entrants who attended the competitions this year and for supporting the Carnival.

“I am looking forward to working alongside this year’s Royals. They are one of our youngest groups of Royals and I am sure they will do a great job of representing both the Cromer Carnival and the town of Cromer.”
