The Bridgnorth Carnival Queen, 15-year-old Oldbury Wells School student Robyn Gross, finally took her place upon the throne during the event held in September. The youngster had previously been a finalist in Miss Junior Teen Great Britain. The event was originally set to go ahead in June but was cancelled due to torrential rain that caused Severn Park to be completely waterlogged in the run-up to the date.
The carnival committee said the rescheduled event focused on the procession, with the array of flamboyant floats taking the normal route around the town, with one change to previous years: it finished in the High Street rather than Severn Park.

On Friday 22 November Robyn Gross will once again be taking on her royal duties by turning on the Christmas lights alongside the town Mayor to welcome in the festive season.
