Miss Alderney

DID YOU KNOW?

The first Miss Alderney was elected in 1948:  Eileen Sykes. Since then we have had a glamorous Miss Alderney virtually every year (except no records for 1956 and 1967).

Just take a look at the beautiful girls who were crowned Miss Alderney from 1948 onwards: (click on the link below)

In 2008 -to mark the 60th anniversary of Miss Alderney – a special Vin d’Honneur was organised at the Island Hall and attended by  many of the Miss Alderneys who flew in from as far away as Australia to join the glamorous party. Just take a look at the photographs published here: 60TH ANNIVERSARY PARTY – MISS ALDERNEY

ELECTING MISS ALDERNEY

Traditionally, Miss Alderney and her Maid of Honour  are elected at the Miss Alderney Disco Party.

This year’s Miss Alderney Disco took place on Easter Saturday 30th March at the Georgian House.

 

MEET MISS ALDERNEY 2024

Miss Alderney 2024  is 21-year old Rhian Miles .

Her Maid of Honour  is 17-year old Anna Tangkam

“Raven-haired beauty Rhian Miles became the latest winner of the Miss Alderney crown and then revealed that she entered to say  thank you to the Island”, writes Mort Birch in the Alderney Journal Issue No. 1292 .(published here with his permission)

Born in India, she moved to the Island in 2019 to join her proud parents, dad Ronnie, a familiar figure at the Alderney Airport where he works on security, and her mum Frankie.

Rhian explained: “Since I came here I have been welcomed by the community and the people of Alderney and I wanted to do something to show my gratitude.”

All of the girls who enter Miss Alderney have to send a text to the judges, who are not identified,  saying why they wanted to be selected. “That is exactly  what I sent to them”, she said.

Chosen at the Miss Alderney Disco at the Georgian House on Easter Saturday, Rhian modestly declared: “I was surprised, I always wanted to enter, but I didn’t have the confidence and I didn’t expect to win”.

The 21-year old isa trainee administrator with Fort Management Services, the independent and privately owned trust and financial services group, at their offices in Alderney.

Before Alderney Week she has an important  examination as part of her studies towards becoming a qualified administrator.  “I am hoping to make my future in finance”, she said.

Rhian’s favourite Alderney Week event is the CAVALCADE, an exciting and colourful parade which marks the start of Alderney Week and her hobby is music and dancing.

Rhian’s Maid of Honour Anna Tangkam, a 17-year old student, who also has her sights firmly set on the future and who also entered the Miss Alderney contest .

Anna is a first year student of performing arts at the  College of Further Education in Guernsey and hopes to become a professional dancer.

She grew up on the Island and being chosen as Maid of Honour for Alderney Week has already fulfilled one of her aims: “As a little girl I always looked up to the girls who were Miss Alderney and the Maid of Honour and I hop I can be a role model for other girls who want to do the same which is what I put in my text to the judges,” she said.

Her parents are Andy Wright and Ladda Tangham. Her father is from Jersey and her mum from Thailand.

Anna’s favourite Alderney Week is the stunning Torchlight Procession which takes place on Saturday night, concludes with massive bonfire and an amazing fireworks display.

And, like Miss Alderney, her hobby is music and dancing.”

Rhian and Anna were crowned by Hollie Jenkins, who was Miss Alderney 2023 with Abigail Ledger as Her Maid of Honour. Both winners were also presented with wonderful prizes.

Throughout Alderney Week, the two ambassadrices were representing their island, attending  numerous events to present prizes or even take part.
Accompanying Rhian and Anna on the float  that will lead  the procession on Cavalcade Day will be 8-year old Little Miss Alderney Matilda Madruga and 8-year old Master Alderney, Marley McAllister-Wilding.
