Dateline: 24 May 2010
2009 Bloxwich Carnival Queen Sally Kirk's crown will be up for grabs soon as organisers set about finding her replacement to play an all-important role in the town’s big day and the coming year.
The competition for a new queen is being held on Thursday 10 June 2010 at St John’s Church in Victoria Avenue, Bloxwich, at 6.00pm.
Young ladies aged between 16 and 24 are invited to impress the judges and continue with all the good work that has been done by reigning carnival queen Sally Kirk, a former Sneyd Community School sixth former.
Selection will also take place for a carnival princess aimed at 11-15-year-olds and a carnival rosebud aimed at five to ten-year-olds. The results will be published in The Bloxidge Tallygraph along with photographs of the new queen and her entourage taken by Tallygraph Edditer Stuart Williams, who is acting as official photographer.
This year’s Bloxwich Carnival, which is supported by Walsall Council and sponsored by WHG, is set for Saturday 7 August 2010 and will take place at King George V playing fields. A last year, there will be no carnival procession, but hopefully the weather will be a lot better!
John Millard, Walsall Council parks development officer, said: “Organisers say that Bloxwich Carnival is one of the biggest in the West Midlands and it’s an event that attracts thousands of people.
Last year’s carnival queen contest saw a record number of entrants and while Sally is a hard act to follow I’m sure there are many other young ladies out there who could do Bloxwich proud.”
