Still time to make your bid to become royalty in this year’s Barnstaple Carnival.

There is still time for girls who would like to be this year’s Barnstaple Carnival Queen - or a princess – to submit their royal applications.

The choosing will be at Barnstaple Hotel on July 12. The age limit for the queen is 14-18, and six to 10 for the princesses.

To enter, simply send a letter with your name and contact details, saying in approximately 50 words why you should be chosen, together with a recent photograph. Younger girls will need parental permission.

Successful royals need to be available for Barnstaple Carnival on September 20, as well as other carnivals in the area.
