A SUDBURY teenager is looking to secure the backing of her home town as she bids to win a place in the prestigious Miss England competition.
Lacie Hart, 19, of First Avenue, has already been selected as a heat finalist and is now hoping to get enough votes to progress to the next round, which takes place in Brentwood on Saturday.
Lacie said: “I’ve got the support of my whole family and they are all very proud.”
The teenager’s mum, Karen, said: “Last year, she came second in the regionals, but she is now looking to go one better.
“She’s always been into dancing and has performed at the London Palladium in the past.
“I think that will help her in the competition and it would be a great achievement if she won.”
Lacie, who has ambitions of becoming a choregrapher, has been dancing since the age of six and has also recently started modelling.
