HONITON has a new carnival queen and royal family following a crowning ceremony, held outside St Paul's Church.
The occasion marked the end of Isabel Stamp's reign as carnival queen; a role she carried out with great enthusiasm and commitment over two years.
Had a new queen not been found, Isabel would have happily served a third year at the helm.
Honiton Community College student Ella Symonds is the new carnival queen and Zara Sillitoe and Lauren King are princesses.

Former mayor Councillor Vernon Whitlock, a great supporter of Honiton and District Carnival, stepped into her shoes - to ensure Honiton was represented at Seaton Carnival, the first illuminated procession on the East Devon circuit. Town crier Dave Retter added a touch of traditional colour to the proceedings. Carnival committee members worked throughout the summer on a new, themed royal float, To The Ball, which took a first prize at Seaton Carnival last Saturday.
