DOTTY MCLEOD: How much luck are you having? How many have you got so far?
KIM BOTTING: Oh at the moment we’ve got in a good fifteen at the moment. So hopefully that should array to piling up with quite a few women at the moment, yes.
DOTTY MCLEOD: Quite a few women. And what are the duties of a Soham Carnival Princess?
KIM BOTTING: Well as it is they’re all judged so obviously local, and hopefully what it does it extends over the years with having a good array of girls that would like to step up to the plate and be our Princess for the year.
DOTTY MCLEOD: And what are they going to be doing this year?
KIM BOTTING: Well hopefully this year it’s just a matter of as I’m saying it’s nice to get some past members, past Princesses get in touch with us so we can have a good show with on the parade.
