Last year’s winner and current Miss Rutland Emma Chevalier had some words of advice for this year’s finalists. She said: “I had a fantastic year as Miss Rutland and loved last year’s final. I would like to say to the finalists to make the most of every minute and enjoy the experience. I wish them the very best of luck.”
Competition director Cara Pereira, who was named first ever Miss Rutland in 2013, added: “All of this years finalists have done incredibly well to get to this stage. Miss Rutland is a great opportunity for them to build confidence, make new friends, build a platform to become part of the community, support charities, try something new and have fun.”
