Have your say

THEY don’t make dresses like that any more!

Back in June, 1986, we asked you “Who Will Be Queen?”.

The story was, of course, about the search for perfect Miss Grantham Journal 1986.

And the ladies here put on their favourite, bright summer outfits for the occasion.

The contenders were invited along for a Journal photo shoot alongside the previous year’s Miss Grantham Journal, Claire Asher.

The winner was to be invited the very day this issue of the Journal hit the news stands on June 27.

Sara Hodgkin, 20, of Alexandra Road, Grantham, was crowned Miss Grantham Journal, with Joanne Locking, aged 12, being named our Carnival Princess.
