Looking back to June 1969, we find a successful young hairstylist from Leasingham making a name for herself in the beauty contest circuit in the area.
Lesley Jones, having figured in a number of other local contests, came second in the Miss Boston contest, only just being beaten by a Boston girl.
The contest at the time fed into the prestigious Miss Anglia contest that would be televised on Anglia TV.
Apparently Lesley said she entered it ‘for a lark’ and won a £10 prize.
Where is Lesley now? Did she go on to win any more contests?
