They all took part in the competition at Pelsall Community Centre on Sunday. Judges included local business people Laura Sylvester and Steve Turner, current Carnival Queen Kathryn Cox and former Carnival Queen Jaimie Lee-McDonald.

Dawn Hadley, chair of Pelsall Carnival Committee, said there was a high standard set in all the competitions.

“We had a fantastic response in all three categories; all the girls looked amazing. It was a great day,” she said.

Next year, the committee is planning to hold a contest for boys aged 6-10 years to be a page.
