Miss Wales 2009
A Miss Wales in the making
Lucy wowed the judges in her three catwalk rounds at the grand final of Miss Wales 2009. Special guest at the event was Miss World Ksenia Sukhinova from Russia who sat with a star studded line up of judges for the evening.
Lucy had great fun trying some truly gorgeous wedding dresses on at Special Day Wedding dresses in Abersychan. The photo shoot was to promote the Blaenavon Wedding Fayre held in August.

Lucy at Miss World
Lucy joined 140 contestants from around the globe to take part in the 56th Miss World pageant in South Africa in November and December 2009. Her five week adventure began in London, then she travelled to Abu Dhabi before setting foot in Johannesburg where meeting the South African president and enjoying a safari were some of the highlights of her stay.

Lucy has been given the opportunity to create her own bespoke perfume, courtesy of newly launched Welsh business Senses in the City. All the finalists of the 2010 regional heats are also being pampered with the Senses of the City experience. Lucky ladies!
Miss Wales Visits Wales Squad
Lucy went to the Vale Hotel to meet members of the Wales squad last week. She asked the players to sign her autograph album that she has been collecting during her year as Miss Wales. The book, full of signatures of sports teams and TV and film stars, will then be auctioned for charity at the end of her reign. The players were happy to oblige, as can be seen from the picture featuring Christian Ribeiro and Mark Bradley. Lucy also received a signed Wales football at the end of her visit that will also go to a charity of her choice.
