Meet some of the entrants for Face of the Fens competition as competition hots up

AS our quest for the Face of the Fens gathers pace it’s time to meet some of those who have entered the competition so far.

Entrants so far include Jess Grief of Islington, near Tilney St Lawrence. She was bullied at school but is now regaining her confidence.

“I want to help others in the same situation so they don’t have to suffer like I did,” she said.

Chelsea Parry, of Wisbech St Mary, has also entered in pursuit of her dream to become a model.

She said: “I enjoy and have experience in front of a camera, love fashion and take pride in hair and beauty.”

Belinda Shevlin has also entered the competition, run by the Cambs Times/Wisbech Standard in association with Boome Hair and Beauty of Whittlesey. She describes herself as having “a classic look like Audrey Hepburn but with a twist”.

Prizes up for grabs include free hairdressing for a year courtesy of Boome, products from Wella and Label.m and a pamper day worth �140.
