The first Miss Rutland is holding auditions to find her successor.
Cara Pereira, 23, of Ranksborough Hall Park, Langham, was given the title in August after impressing judges with her passion for the county during the finals of Miss Leicester. She has now launched the search for the second Miss Rutland and will hold auditions at Catmose Sports and Leisure Centre in Oakham from 11am on May 3.
Cara said: “My advice is to be yourself, be relaxed, talk to everyone and you will be absolutely fine. We’re not looking for the prettiest girl - we are looking for the girl who has the whole package.”
The contest is open to women aged 18 to 27 who live within 50 miles of Rutland. Visit www.facebook.com/missgb.rutland
