Meet Potters Bar Carnival Princess and maids of honour

HERE are the three young ladies who will be leading the Potters Bar Carnival celebrations this year.

Stephanie Allen, 12, has been chosen as the 2010 Potters Bar carnival princess, and will be accompanied by her two maids of honour, Ruby Turner and Scarlet Reid, both seven, when they lead the procession through the town on June 13.

Being named princess is a dream that has finally come true for Mount Grace pupil Stephanie, having been a finalist in the competition for the past five years running, and with this being the last year she could have entered.

“I’m really excited,” said Stephanie, from Tarrington Drive.

“I’d started to doubt that I’d ever win. I’m nervous, but excited at the same time.”

“I’d always thought that one year she’d finally do it.”

“I’m quite excited,” she said. “I really like the crown.”

And Scarlet, who attends Pope Paul RC School, said: “I didn’t believe it. I was really, impressed [to win].

“I really want to be a maid of honour, and I’m quite excited.”

All three girls will now lead the procession, starting at Canada Life in High Street and through the town to Elm Court Youth and Community Centre, where a variety of stalls and entertainment await visitors.
