Battle of Flowers 2023 – St Lawrence Battle Ambassadors
Request for expressions of interest from any young people who might like to be the next St Lawrence Senior and Junior Ambassadors!
The Ambassador role replaced the Miss St Lawrence role and is open to boys and girls. Until recently, every parish held their own ambassador competition, and the winners of each parish were able to compete to become the overall Senior and Junior Battle Ambassadors.
Last year, only a few parishes, including St Lawrence, selected Ambassadors and there were no overall Battle Ambassadors. It is not currently clear whether there will be overall Battle Ambassadors this summer.
Since being selected last April, Olivia has been an excellent Senior Ambassador and Elodie has been a super Junior Ambassador, and they have both helped at various parish events, in addition to investing many hours helping with the floats. Madaline was a great Junior Consort and has devoted many hours to her parish as well. We are very fortunate to have such wonderful young people representing St Lawrence!
Before we start organising this year’s competition, we would like to know who is interested in the roles of St Lawrence Senior and Junior Ambassadors, please?
Ideally, we will need 2 or more young people to run for each role in order to arrange an event:
Senior Ambassador – you must be aged 17 years or over on Friday 11th August 2023. You must be either a resident of the Parish of St Lawrence or have helped with St Lawrence Battle float for the past 5 years if you do not live in the parish.
Junior Ambassador – you must be in school Years 3-6 at the time of the competition (April 2023). You must be either a resident of the Parish of St Lawrence or have helped with the St Lawrence Battle float for the past 2 years if you do not live in the parish.
Ambassadors will also need to be available to help during Battle Week and take part in the parades on Friday 11thAugust and Saturday 12thAugust 2023.
Please contact Susan Parker, Deputy Chair of St Lawrence Battle of Flowers, to express your interest by Friday 24th March at [email protected] or 07797 916991.
