People who have been carnival queens in Ilkeston over the last 25 years are being asked to come forward.

This year’s carnival, organised by Ilkeston Lions Club, will be held on June 13 and will mark the 25th anniversary of the club organising the 80-year-old event.

Sue Birch, organiser, said: “We want to try and get as many of the old carnival queens as possible to attend this year’s event and have a walk around the arena.”

If you were a carnival queen from the past 25 years contact Sue on 01159 447737.

The carnival takes place on Rutland Recreation Ground.
