The weather is distinctly not for carnivals, but the countdown has begun already to Sheringham's summer spectacular.

The selection evening for Sheringham Carnival's queen and attendants is on march 22 in the private function room at the Tyneside Club at 8pm.

Those who are selected to join the royal family will win £150 and a specially-designed dress.

Paula Popham from the carnival committee said: 'Ladies, please come along and enter – you will have a lovely week. Bring all your family and friends for moral support.'

The band Liza Wolfe will be playing during the evening.

Mrs Popham said the programme was being worked on and would be ready for publication in time for the Cromer and Sheringham Crab and Lobster Festival in May.
