Newchurch - Local beauties paraded this week in the annual Garlic Festival beauty pageant.

The pageant has been a source of controversy at it is now being held only every other year causing some to complain that it should not be advertised as an annual event.

Mayor Tom Shovel defends the practice as not being untruthful as the Garlic Festival continues to be an annual event.

"The Annual Garlic Festival beauty pageant is an important part of the Newchurch economy despite it now being held only every other year."

Mayor Shovel explained "The number of contestants has declined in recent years as Newchurch has had difficulty retaining young people and all contestants are now seniors."

"The Pageant has come down to being a skills competition showcasing local crafts."

"This year's winner Eleanor Skrimshaw stood head and shoulders above the competition by showcasing her skills at petti-point."
