PROSPECTIVE carnival queens and princesses have just one week left to put their names forward if they want to become this year's Dunmow Carnival Court.
The organisers of this year's event are on the look out for a girl aged 13 or over to be queen for a year. Also needed are two princesses, who should be aged between eight and 12.
The three lucky girls, who are selected by the carnival committee's panel of judges, will represent the town at the Dunmow Carnival when they parade through the town in their own float. They will also get to attend other carnivals throughout Essex.
Kathleen Cooper, member for the Carnival Procession Committee, said: "Any girl from Dunmow and its surrounding villages can enter, as long as they meet the age requirements.
