1990 Carnival Princess
Amanda Shuttlewood nee Lloyd was crowned Canvey Princess in 1990 along with Suzanne Knox as Queen and Tina Wines as the other Princess. It was the year when at first no one entered the contest and the organisers were starting to panic. Eventually several girls came forward and these three lucky girls were picked as Canvey’s court for 1990.
Suzanne Knox was crowned at the paddocks by businessman Mr James O’Brian. Mr O’Brian whose Company Symien Coaches sponsored the crowning dance also did the honours for Amanda, Tina and the Deputy Queen Paula Fiddy who had been Queen for 1989.
