Mark Bonnett, from the carnival committee, said: “So far we have heard from 15 past Miss Cromers but would like as many as possible to celebrate our 50th anniversary with us on Carnival Sunday at the crowning of Miss Cromer 2019 and on Carnival Day, when can spend the day with us and go around the parade.”
