Carnival search for new royal team
THE carnival queen has almost finished her duties and is getting ready to hand over her crown.
Queen Casey Spearing and Prince Olly Robertson assisted Shepton Mallet Carnival committee chairman, Don Clifford, in drawing the raffle at the Mid Somerset Show on Sunday.
The Shepton Mallet Carnival Committee attended the event to begin fundraising at the show for the canival, which costs £17,000 to run each year.
Assisting with the raffle is one of the last duties of the royal team, with the final one being to crown the new King or Queen on Friday September 27.
There is still time to enter the competition to lead the Carnival on Wednesday November 13. Entry forms and details are available from Penny's Sweets, High St, Shepton Mallet.
