We’re helping Wisbech Round Table to find a Queen who will scoop a great prize package - which includes a £150 cheque from the Round Table. Full details of the prize package are to follow.

The latest entries include Julia Barraclough (19). Although Julia now lives in Sutton Bridge, she is a Wisbech girl born and bred. She loves going out with her friends and going to the gym.

Eighteen-year-old Megan Morgan, from Downham Market, has also entered. She is at college, doing uniformed services, and has a passion for horses.

Kelsey Mary Burnham is our youngest entry so far, at just 14. The Emneth teenager is working hard at school and trains with the Hungate girls team, who she is hoping to play for next season.
