Could you be the next Cromer Carnival queen?

A royal decree has been issued to find Cromer's next carnival queen.

Organisers of the annual extravaganza, which runs from August 11-17, are appealing for ladies to come forward for the selection event from 7.30pm on April 27.

Judges at the Cliftonville Hotel will select the next person to be the leader of the town's royal family, to take over from 2011 queen Lucy Royle.

They will also select the queen's senior attendant.

Miss Cromer will receive a �200 prize, sponsored by Woodrows Chartered Surveyors, and must be available to attend all day on Sunday August 12 and Wednesday August 15.

The senior attendant, who must be available on the same days, gets a �150 prize, sponsored by Icarus Hines Butchers.

Entrants must be 17 years old or over and live within the area of the Poppyland Partnership - Cromer, Suffield Park, Aldborough, Aylmerton, East and West Runton, Felbrigg, Hanworth, Northrepps, Overstrand, Roughton, Sidestrand, Sustead and Trimingham.
