CHILDREN have the chance to be treated like royalty for the day, courtesy of Broadwater Carnival.

A prince and princess are sought for the Walking and Wheels Carnival Procession around Broadwater Green.

Children aged eight to 12 can apply, with the chance to win £50 and head up the procession alongside Worthing mayor Michael Donin.

For the first time, Broadwater Carnival Day is being combined with the Worthing Fire Station open day, on Saturday July 18.

Ann Barlow, one of the organisers, said: “The procession will feature decorated pushing wheels, pulling wheels, ride along wheels, sit on wheels and any other wheeled contraption you can conjure up – all without any motors.

“We really want to encourage families, schools, community groups, nurseries, playgroups, pre-schools, Scouting and Guiding groups, and businesses to join in.”

All entrants for the prince and princess competition should be from the Worthing and Lancing areas.

Email a colour photograph to, putting ‘Carnival Royalty’ in the subject line and make sure the name, age, address and telephone number are included. The closing date is Wednesday, June 24.

The winner will be decided by public vote, using a form which will be printed in the Worthing and Lancing Heralds.

Voting will begin on Thursday, July 4, and the winners will be announced in the two newspapers on Thursday, July 16
