IF you’re a woman aged 16 to 30 and have lived, worked or been in full-time education in Taunton Deane for at least three months and fancy a shot at becoming Miss Taunton 2014, then now’s the time to apply.

Among the duties for the winning candidate will be acting as an ambassador for the county town and its carnival, including heading the procession on Saturday, October 18.

Taunton Carnival Committee is seeking applicants with an outgoing personality who enjoy meeting people ahead of a selection night at Miles at the Riverside on Friday, July 18.

The winner will receive £200 in cash, a dress to wear at Taunton Carnival functions, hair style by Toni & Guy and a voucher for @Tristans Bistro.

If you fit the bill or know someone who does, contact carnival chairman Marilyn House at 5 Augustine Street, Taunton TA1 1QJ, call 01823-289395 or e-mail mail@marilynhouse.co.uk by July 4.

Not wishing to be disrespectful to the entrants but isn't this old fashioned and out of date? Yes some may say it's only a bit of fun, but why is it females again being objectified? How about Mr Taunton? No, didn't think so.
