THIS bevy of beauties enjoyed a girls night out with a difference.
The girls, who are all finalists in the Miss Fylde Coast 2011 competition, tucked into fish and chips on the Promenade after having a rather unusual beauty treatment.
Their ladies night had been organised by outgoing Miss Fylde Coast 2010, Kerry Capoverde, who wanted all the finalists to meet each other before the big event on May 22.
Kerry said: “It was a lovely night. The girls all really enjoyed it.
“I had wanted to organise something similar when I was a finalist last year, but couldn’t find a time when all the girls could make it.
“So when I won, I thought it would be something nice for this year’s contestants to do. So I organised a night for them to get together.
“I went to a similar event in Lancaster, where they went to a fish spa, which are really popular at the moment – and it was great fun. “So I thought it would be really nice to do the same here.
“I heard about Joey Blower’s fish spa at South Pier after the Coronation Street stars went there. I thought it would be really good, especially as there would be fish and chips too.
“Joey was great and really looked after us. We were pampered and then we all enjoyed fish and chips on the seafront, it had a real Blackpool feel about it.
“All the girls had a great time, chatting and getting to know each other. I think it helps with the nerves if you know there will be friendly faces there in the final, if you’ve met before. It helps break the ice.
“And I was there with Miss Preston, we were able to answer any questions the other girls had about being in the final.
“I am a bit sad my year is coming to an end, but have had such a wonderful time.
“I have really enjoyed getting stuck into all the fundraising and charity side of things and think I will carry that on if I can.
“I have made so many friends and met so many great people. I’ve had some fantastic experiences.”
Amy Davids, 17, from Thornton, one of the finalists who went along to the night out, said: “It was a brilliant night, we all really enjoyed it.
“I felt really pampered.
“It made me feel much more comfortable about the final having met the other girls.
“When it comes to the final I know there will be a few friendly faces.
“We got on really well and it was really nice to be able to ask Kerry questions about what the final is like as well.”
The Baines sixth form student, who works in Topshop part-time, added: “I would like to go into modelling, so that’s why I entered the Miss Fylde Coast competition.
“It’s my first competition, so it has really helped to meet the other finalists first and get to know them a bit.”
The Miss Fylde Coast final will take place on May 22, at Thornton Little Theatre.
