Miss Alderney 2015 announced

Posted Mon 13th April 2015 at 13:59

The new Miss Alderney was unveiled this weekend - and she won her crown by text.

Ruby Walker, 18, was selected as the ambassador for this year's Alderney Week at a disco held at the Island Hall on Saturday night.

Her selection was the first official event of the 2015 Alderney Week calendar, and the fresh team in charge of the proceedings ringed the changes by bestowing it with a distinctly youthful twist. On the night, organisers went round asking girls to simply text their name and ages to a given mobile number. The age range was also widened - from 16 to late 40s. And for the first time Miss Alderney was able to enter with a friend, a Maid of Honour, to support her in her duties.

Miss Walker, who is in her final term at Guernsey's College of Further Education, studying a course in Health and Social Care, was one of 17 girls to enter. Shauna Jenkins will be her consort. "My mum Kerry and my aunties, Sammy and Bonnie Jenkins, have all served as Miss Alderney, so I knew I would have to enter the competition at some point," she explained. "The summer between college and university seemed the ideal time to try. I arrived just before 11pm and someone gave me a number to text. I thought, if I win, great, but if I don't, nobody will know I even entered!"
