Two princesses have been chosen to represent Beccles alongside the queen at this year’s carnival.

Evie Gregson and Brooke Lay took the princess crowns at the selection afternoon at Blyburgate Hall on May 20, alongside Christine Soanes as queen and Harrison Nichols as this year’s prince.

Each day on Enjoy Beccles More we are finding out more about our royal representatives.

And today, following on from yesterday’s factfile on Miss Beccles Christine Soanes, we are meeting the first of our princesses.

Name: Evie Gregson

Where do you live: Beccles

Age: Nine

What school do you attend: Albert Pye Primary School

Why I wanted to be a Beccles ambassador:

I have always loved watching the carnival with my family and I’ve always wanted to be part of it and I’d like to help keep it in Beccles.

What I like best about Beccles:

Beccles is beautiful and all the people are kind and friendly.

What I am looking forward to the most:

Being in the carnival and being part of all the other events the carnival does and attends.

Chosen charity:

Beccles Museum because it’s a beautiful building, an interesting place to go and learn about Beccles, not many people visit or even know it is there which is sad because I had a brilliant time when I visited.

Hobbies and interests:

I am part of the Albert Pye’s choir and choir dance. I love to sing I also go to JAM club on a Wednesday where we have lots of fun. I enjoy climbing, fishing, swimming, and watching the greatest showman with my family.

Don’t forget to visit Enjoy Beccles More tomorrow where we will meet the second of our carnival princesses.
