The ‘Countdown’ to this year’s Jersey Battle of Flowers officially got underway at the Jersey Arts Centre on Sunday evening, 05 June with the crowning of Miss Jersey Battle of Flowers 2016, her runner-up Consort, Miss Junior Battle and the announcement of Mr Battle 2016.
19-year old Aimee Le Brun is Miss Jersey Battle of Flowers 2016. The trainee administrator who lives in the Parish of St Saviour competed against 12 other finalists to become the 64th holder of the title.
Runner-up in the competition was 20-year old Rebecca Amy who, as Miss Battle’s Consort will accompany her at both the Day and Moonlight Parades on Thursday 11 and Friday 12 August.
Completing the trio is Lucy-Anne Richford who earlier that evening was crowned Miss Junior Battle 2016. The 11-year old who lives in the Parish of St Saviour and is a pupil at JCG Prep School competed against 11 other youngsters for the title.
Asked to describe how she felt about winning the title, the newly crowned Miss Jersey Battle of Flowers said, “I am delighted and so proud to have been chosen. It is a dream come true and I am so looking forward to representing the Battle of Flowers over the next 12 months and of course to the Parades in August”.
Her sentiments were echoed by Miss Junior Battle, Lucy-Anne who when asked shortly after being crowned by the 2015 Miss Junior Battle, Rachel Jones how she was felt, simply replied, “It’s the best feeling ever”.
Just before this year’s title-holder was crowned, the audience heard from the outgoing Miss Battle of Flowers 2015, Chantelle Mundy, who is currently studying overseas in Canada and therefore was unable to attend the evening’s event. In a recorded video speech she described her year as “Fantastic” and reminded her successor to make the most of every opportunity that comes her way as Miss Battle.
