AN aspiring primary school teacher has reached the finals of this year's Miss Worcestershire competition.

Lower Wick resident Lucy Biggerstaff, 19, impressed judges and is delighted to have reached the final.

She said: "I'd never done anything like this before but I'd seen it happen for the past two years.

"I always thought I'd like to do it and this year I'll go for it.

"When I found out I'd got to the final I was so excited and just proud of myself.

"I really pushed myself to be more confident and I was really pleased as it showed my hard work had paid off."

Lucy is looking forward to the final and has been advised by her mum to make the most of the day.

"It is quite nerve-wracking but my mum old me to enjoy it," she said.

"I already feel like I've achieved lots."

Lucy is in her first year of studying primary education at Liverpool John Moores University.

She studied at Pitmaston Primary School, Christopher Whitehead Language College and Worcester Sixth Form College.

As part of the competition, Lucy has so far raised £668 for charity Beauty with a Purpose.

She has worked alongside local business Halo Style Boutique, which is based in CrownGate.
