THIS week voting has begun in the Miss Mansfield and Sherwood Forest competition. Chad readers are now being asked to vote for the 12 girls they would like to see go through to the grand final from the 20 who have made it through to this stage.
The top 12 from your votes over the next two weeks will then appear before a panel of judges at the grand final at the John Fretwell Centre, Sookholme, on Saturday 15th October.
Chad is leading the search for a young woman to be an ambassador for the area at a variety of events.
The winner, who may go on to compete for the prestigious Miss England title, can also campaign for a charity of their choice.
Chad is again backing the event, together with main sponsor I & N Fabrications and associate sponsors The Works Hair and Beauty, Pinders Opticians, 10 Green Bottles, Mansfield 103.2 and DK Associates.
During the final evening, the contestants will compete in various categories to win the title - and there will be entertainment from local bands and performers.
Organiser Trish Mapletoft, a previous winner of the competition, said: “Our aim for the Miss Mansfield event is ‘Beauty with a Purpose’, so our winner not only has to be beautiful, she has to be smart, talented and dedicated also.
“The competition standard has again been extremely high.
“All the girls were fantastic - it is a shame that we could not put all of them through to the grand final.”
