Nine-year-old Daisy Richardson has been crowned as the 2014 Ashington Carnival Princess.
The Ashington First School pupil was chosen this weekend, by lucky draw, at a Children’s Disco in Ashington Community Centre.

The Carnival Princess’ two attendants are Isabella Aegisdottir and Lyndsey Lee (both age five). The pageboys are Alfie Price, six, Jacob Lee, eight and Julian Seymour, nine.
The Carnival procession starts at 1.30pm and follows a route through Ashington village to finish on the Recreation ground.
The Festival which follows includes a large stage with live acts performing through the afternoon and evening, including tribute acts ‘The Silver Beatles’ and ‘Curves Aloud’ and ‘Britain’s Got Talent’ impressionist and comedian Drew Cameron. Also featuring will be animal acts, children’s entertainers and circus performers.
