afternoon's task was a very difficult one for judges, Gordon
and Margaret Lucas and Lyn Tomlinson as they had to choose
from twelve pretty young hopefuls competing to become the
2009 Ross-on-Wye Carnival Princess. The girls were introduced
by Colin Gray of Ross Carnival Committee before they were
asked a series of questions by the judges.
each hopeful young lady had been interviewed individually
by all three judges and awarded points from each, in the
end, it was a very close thing with just one point between
1st and 2nd place and one point between 2nd and 3rd place.
year old Nina Warran and 9 1/2 year old Susan Yaldiz were
chosen as the new Princess' attendants and 10 year old Phoebe
Sleeman was crowned Carnival Princess.
