Twelve-year old Evie Popovic of Audlem is Nantwich's new Princess after a selection night that involved fifty girls putting themselves up to be the town's Community Princess for 2008. Evie will now be the figurehead for the Nantwich Fun Day at Barony Park on 12th July.
The competition is sponsored by the Nantwich Guardian and Evie was pictured on the front page of the newspaper being crowned by last year's Princess. The selection evening was held at Brine Leas School. After winning, Evie said: "When I was given the trophy my hands were shaking so much I was scared I was going to drop it. I'm a really girly girl so I'm looking forward to wearing the dresses and make-up, but also the limousine ride."
Evie's mum was thrilled too, saying: "Evie had put her name forward for the Audlem Carnival Queen but didn't get it so this has really made her year."
The girls were judged on their poise, charm and personality at the selection night which was compered by Brine Leas Head Teacher, Andrew Cliffe.
