Milly crowned festival princess

March 29 2018

CHIPPING Sodbury School pupil Milly Sady has been chosen as the town’s festival princess.

Milly, 12, will be supported in her role by attendants Charlotte Hayward, 11, who attends Raysfield Junior School, and nine-year-old Daisy Jones, of St John's Mead Primary School.

Festival chairwoman Kate Cox said this year’s annual event would run from June 8-17, with a programme drawn up to suit as many tastes as possible.

A new feature will be a talent show on Sunday, June 10, and the popular street fair and carnival is expected to bring in the usual crowds.

Copies of the programme, as well as posters, have been distributed around the town and there are also regular updates on the festival’s Facebook page.
