FELIXSTOWE'S new carnival queen will not rule for as long our sovereign – but her reign is lasting longer than usual.
For Faye Lloyd has agreed to serve for the second year running, having enjoyed the role so much in the past 12 months.
"I have really enjoyed it and when the carnival committee asked me if I would do it again, I said it would be an honour. I love meeting people and going to all the events and I am looking forward to doing it all over again," she said.
"Last year was great, and I was so busy. The carnival went really well and I am hoping to have as much fun again this time."
