PRIDE of Erin waltzes and other older styles of dance have helped to bring tradition back-to-life at the Woodhill Hall.

The partnered routines were all part of the Junior Miss, Miss and Mrs Woodhill dinner held last Saturday.

Woodhill Hall’s management committee secretary Arthur Day said the annual Miss Woodhill contest, which was adjudicated using informal criteria, had continued after 59 years.

“We just get a couple of local judges, a couple from Beaudesert, and they judge them (the contestants) on they’re personalities and how nicely they dress,” Mr Day said.

Jane Hawkins was awarded the Miss Woodhill title and received the Ted Dale Perpetual Trophy, with Hannah Johnson, who was aged under 15 years, named as Junior Miss Woodhill and Trish Jurd as Mrs Woodhill.

Mr Day said runner-ups were Miss Kirsty Bishop, Junior Miss Nikita Rayward-Bunn and Mrs Lyn Morterson.

He said the night included lucky door prizes, raffle draws and other festivities.
