SMILING girls, willing to give a royal wave to crowds of people, are being invited to apply for a position on the St Neots carnival court.

Applications are being invited for the role of the town's carnival queen and princess.

The carnival is making a comeback this year over the August Bank Holiday weekend after lack of support meant the event did not go ahead in 2008.

This year the organisers promise it will be bigger and better than ever and a new carnival court is needed.

Application should be made by August via the St Neots Carnival Club website (www.stneotscarnival.co.uk) or by e-mailing Karen@stneotscarnival.co.uk.

Pictures of the shortlisted candidates will be printed in The Hunts Post.

St Neots Carnival Committee held its first public meeting last month and elected its youngest chairman in the carnival's 60 year history - 21-year-old Nicola Henderson, who is the current carnival queen.

Nicola's deputy, Cassy Long, 20, will be vice chairman and they will be assisted by nine committee members.

Nicola said: "I am delighted to take the chair for 2009 and the committee is full of enthusiasm to revive the carnival. We have a number of fundraising events planned over the coming months which we hope the community will get involved and support. "The carnival was sorely missed last year and we hope to fill the hole and bring back the community spirit to the town.
