Nadine Lemon will have to put her DIY projects aside and change from her dungarees when she takes up her new role as Wells Carnival Queen.

Nadine, 20, can't wait to wear the 2008 carnival crown and sash because she says that she absolutely loves Wells Carnival which this year runs from August 2 to 10.

“It is a great event for the town and there is always so much happening that week. I booked the week off work in January and now that I have won the carnival queen contest I will be able to get many of the events,” she said.

Nadine, who was runner-up last year and took on the role of attendant to Carnival Queen Carys Groom, has lived in the town since she was eight. She now lives with her boyfriend, 23-year-old Stacy Scoles and the couple are busy doing up a house they have bought in Dersingham.

Part of Nadine's prize was £125 towards her carnival queen gown and she and her attendant, 17-year-old Suzanne Heffer, are planning to go shopping this weekend to look at dresses they will wear on Carnival Day in August when they will ride at the head of the parade of decorated floats through the streets of Wells.

“I just love Wells Carnival and I have been actively involved in it during the past few years. I think it is the best part of the year, it is such a well organised and successful event with something for everyone to enjoy,” said Nadine, who works customer service insurance clerk for Adrian Flux company at East Winch.
