PLUM royalty was crowned for the first time since before the pandemic as organisers unveiled this year’s Pershore Plum Festival princess.

After a ‘bleak’ two years, one of the highlights of the town’s festival calendar returned on Sunday (July 3) with the Plum Blossom Sunday event.

The event at the Angel Hotel, sponsored by Thomson & Bancks enter the competition this year.

After giving judges one of the hardest decisions they have made for years, 10-year-old Isla Driscoll who attends Cropthorne with Charlton First School was crowned Plum Princess.

She will be assisted by eight-year-old Jenny Marks, who also attends the same school, and Olivia Clarke aged 11 from Blessed Edward Oldcorne College.

Angela Taylor, chair of the Pershore Plum Festival said: “A grateful thanks to everyone that made Plum Blossom Sunday such a great event, it is wonderful to be back.

“Congratulations to Isla, Jenny and Olivia with thanks to all our other contestants who did so incredibly well.

“We look forward to welcoming everyone to Pershore this summer for plum filled events and activities”
