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).

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.

ELECTING MISS ALDERNEY
Traditionally, Miss Alderney and her Maid of Honour are elected at the Miss Alderney Disco Party. Sadly, due to the COVID situation at the time, the Miss Alderney Disco had to be cancelled in 2020 and 2021 and, as a result, we do not have a Miss Alderney 2020 nor a Miss Alderney 2021. However on Cavalcade Day 2020, sixteen Miss Alderneys, including Honorary Miss Alderney Dr. Nicola Brink, all carried the title of Miss Alderney 2020 and took part in a very special cavalcade float.

All about Miss Alderney 2023 – Hollie Jenkins
Miss Alderney 2023, 17-year old Hollie Jenkins, was elected Miss Alderney 2023 on Easter Saturday and the Alderney Week Team is delighted with the judges’ choice.
Hollie and her Maid of Honour, 18-year old Abigail Ledger, will be representing their island throughout Alderney Week, attending numerous events to present prizes or even take part.
With the Miss Alderney title also come several amazing prizes, which this year included a stunning necklace created by Alderney jewellery designer Fire and Ore, a bracelet from Sew Much Fun, a beauty hamper from Boardman’s, an Aurigny voucher for a return flight to Guernsey and, of course, a beautiful bouquet of flowers. Her Maid of Honour also received a necklace specially created by Barefoot Seaglass, a bracelet from Sew Much Fun and a bouquet of flowers.
… and a bit more about Miss Alderney 2023:
Hollie comes from a long-established island family and is currently a student at Guernsey Grammar School. Her favourite subject is P.E. and her career ambition is to ultimately become a physiotherapist.
She is also a keen table tennis player and this summer she will represent her island at the Island Games in Guernsey– hopefully adding another title to her collection.
You may recall that in 2011 Hollie was crowned Little Miss Alderney, and she claimed that title once more in 2014. Beauty and charm runs in her family: her cousin Adele Woodruff was crowned Miss Alderney in 2008
Hollie’s favourite Alderney Week events are the Cavalcade and the Torchlight Procession, the Man-Powered Flight and the Daft Raft Race.
Expect a spectacular Miss Alderney float in this year’s Cavalcade Parade – which will be created by her family who can’t wait for Alderney Week to start.
