Natasha Hemmings, Miss Cheshire

A South Cheshire teenager has reached the Miss England finals in 2015 – after wowing judges with her eco-dress!

Natasha Hemmings, 19, won the Miss Cheshire finals – the first time the title has been held by someone from Crewe and Nantwich.

And the former Weston Primary School pupil, who now lives in Wychwood Park, won it by designing her own eco-dress, made from old newspapers.

She gave an eco speech at the Miss Cheshire finals and has vowed to continue work in that area.

“The past few days have been crazy, but I can’t wait now to sit down and read through my Miss England pack!” she said.

Natasha, who now has 46,200 followers on twitter, is at University of Nottingham where she is studying English Literature.

She has been involved in school and community shows most of her life and attended the Alison Gallagher School of Dance in Sandbach.

When she was 14 she secured a place at the Royal Northern College of Music and had classical singing training.

She has also completed the Duke of Edinburgh award and raises money for the disabled children’s charity Variety.

In the Miss Cheshire finals, there was a sportswear, party wear and evening wear category.

The final outfit was the eco dress, an outfit that had to be made from recycled materials.

Natasha chose newspapers as she wanted to raise awareness for World Environment Day on June 5.

There was phone vote as well as votes from a panel of four judges.

“I would like to thank everyone that voted and everyone that has given money to the charity,” she added.

“I’m excited about the Miss England final and hope the Cheshire public gets behind and supports me.”

The Miss England finals take place on august 13 and 14 at the Ricoh Arena in Coventry.
