Six girls have been selected to take centre stage at Portishead Carnival.

The carnival will roll into town again this summer and the lucky winners will take part in the showpiece.

Elizabeth Logan, aged 10 from St Joseph’s Primary School, will be the 2018 carnival princess.

She was selected at a princess carnival disco, held on March 9.

More than 60 youngsters took part.

Amy Moss, aged 10, and Ruby Villis, who is a year younger, from St Peter’s and Portishead primary schools, will be attendants.

Seven-year-old Charlotte Radakin, of High Down Junior School, will be a flower princess.

Her attendants will be seven-year-old Aoife Scanlan and eight-year-old Katelyn Fielden, who are taught at St Peter’s and Portishead primary schools respectively.

Their duties will include leading the carnival on June 16, assisting at the Senior Citizens supper and helping at the Christmas lights switch on.
