The Princess and her attendants for Carnival 2005 were selected at the Princess Disco on April 29th at Elvetham Heath Community hall. Fleet.

Mrs Carol Jordan a secretary, Mrs Christine Macfarlane a local sales negotiator and Mr Richard Hull a sales manager were this years judges.They managed to whittle the attending 73 girls down to the  3 winners, never an easy task.

This year’s Princess is Rebecca Eales age 11 who attends Church Crookham Junior School, she loves swimming and athletics. Her attendants are Ella Jennings age 11 and goes to Calthorpe secondary school and Olivia Cure age 8 from Velmead Junior school. Ella’s hobbies are Dancing and Jazz and Olivia is a keen tennis player. The 3 girls were crowned and presented with flowers by last years royalty, Georgina Pearson, Francesca Ward and Brook Tiller.





The Selection Disco master of ceremonies was Rod Stean.

The event was organised by Anne Bellicoso who will chaperone the girls while they carry out their duties over the next year.

Special thanks to Smart Lady, Albert St. Fleet for their sponsorship.

There were nearly 150 entries from four schools. The carnival would like to thank all those children from Velmead Junior, All Saints Junior, Church Crookham Junior and Crondall Primary schools who took part in the competition. Also all teachers and others who encouraged the children to participate in the competition.The standard was very high and the judges had great difficulty in deciding the winners.

Please note: As so many entries included text it was decided to accept these entries to avoid disappointing so many children who had spent so much time on there pictures.
