THESE four youngsters will have the prestigious honour of leading the Pershore Carnival procession after being chosen by organisers.

James Andrews and Jasmine Hoskins were chosen to be King and Queen for this year’s carnival which will be held on Bank Holiday Monday, May 25.

And Connor McNickle and Milly Thomas will also play a huge part in the popular event after they were named carnival Prince and Princess.

The youngsters were chosen as representatives from Pershore Swimming Club and Pershore Scout Hut, the two charities being supported by this year’s event.

Organisers revealed their choices at an event at Pershore Library hosted by carnival committee Chairman Colin Shepherd and assisted by Coun Charles Tucker and fellow volunteers.
