Welcome to our new Carnival Queen and Princesses



17 year old Chyanne Hooks has been crowned Clacton Carnival Queen for 2014.   Chyanne is a 6th form student at the Tendring Technology College studying for her ‘A’ levels to go on to University to study Theatre Management. 14 year old Teegan Deeks and 12 year old Mia Headford, both pupils at the Clacton Coastal Academy were chosen as her Princesses.


The Selection and Crowning took place at a Disco at The Tavern, Holland on Sea on Friday 28th March. It was a closely fought contest with 4 entries for Queen and 10 for Princess with the Judges having a very difficult task as the standard was so high.  The Judges were: Sally Dewing, 1987 St.Osyth Carnival Queen also GCS Alarms; Lorraine Ingold from Dream Promotions; Peter Edwards from the Fund Raising Committee for the Clacton Lifeboat and Paul Dewing from GCS Alarms.  The girls were each given a Voucher by Gary McNamara of ‘Hair 4 U’ and their prize money, sponsored by GCS Alarms, will be presented to them later in the year.


Chyane, Teegan and Mia will be seen representing Clacton at various other Carnivals in the area throughout the summer. The highlight for them will be leading the Clacton Carnival Procession on Saturday 9th August, when the theme will be ‘FAIRY TALES’. This will be at the beginning of a very busy Carnival Week to raise funds for many local charities.
