Miss Pembrokeshire will be on hand to officially open Oakwood Theme Park to the public for the 2011 season on Saturday, April 9th.
Beauty therapy student Hannah Snape, 18, who won the title back in February will be invited to officially cut the ribbon by Park Director Andy Hygate before welcoming the first visitors through the gates.
She will then join Andy to sample some of Oakwood’s most popular rides including the wooden coaster Megafobia, Bounce, Speed and Drenched.
“We’re delighted Hannah has kindly agreed to help us re-open the park to the public,” said Andy.
“As well as winning the title of Miss Pembrokeshire, Hannah has also helped to raise lots of money for the children’s cancer charity The Joshua Foundation and we’re more than happy to support her ongoing fundraising work.
“Everyone here has been working incredibly hard over the winter to get Oakwood ready for its first visitors and we are all really looking forward to the new season,” he added.
Hannah, who is from Milford Haven, will go on to represent the county in the Miss Wales Grand Final at St David’s Hall in Cardiff on Saturday 2 July. The winner will represent Wales at Miss World.
Prior to the competition the contestants for Miss Pembrokeshire and Miss Carmarthenshire raised more than £5,200 for the competition’s associated charity, The Joshua Foundation.
Hannah will continue to fundraise for the children’s cancer charity in the run up to the Miss Wales Grand Final.
