2018 Carnival Queens 


The Oakwood Centre in Woodley, rang out to the cheers and applause of family and friends as this year’s Woodley carnival Queens and princesses were crowned.

This year the competition was open to boys and girls that either live or go to school in Woodley. Despite several male entries on the night they were no shows and the spoils went to the girls. The evening was compared by Bethany Anderson and supported by members of the community carnival committee all of whom are volunteers.

The judges, Janet Bonney and Alicia Witkowski had some tough decisions to make after talking to all the girls, their final choice was made based on their personality and ability to represent the community carnival both on carnival day, leading the procession in open topped cars; as well as the run up to carnival and beyond for the rest of the year.

The girls Alyssa Coomber 8 years old, Summer Close 10 years old, Destiny Strotten 7 years old all received a sash, a crown, a goody bag as well as lifelong entry to the community carnival event. They also had their photos taken by a talented amateur photographer Christopher Grace, as a lasting memento of the evening.
