Joyce Hobson, president of Stalybridge Festival Committee, said “I would like to congratulate our 2019 carnival queens (Rhianna Ashmore, junior queen and Gracie Flanagan, princess) who did us proud – not only on carnival day but also picking up awards at other carnivals in the North West over the summer.
