Brogan’s bid for beauty

A YOUNG woman from Langley Mill is celebrating after reaching the final eight in a beauty pageant.

Brogan Beardsley, 19, reached the finals of the Miss Nottingham competition at Notts County Football Club on Sunday night. Proud mum Julie Storer said: “It was quite nerve-racking. She couldn’t smile. Her lip was trembling because she was so nervous! But she held herself together very well.”

Brogan, who is currently on a gap-year after studying at Aldercar Sixth Form College, works as a sales assistant at Giltbrook Retail Park and wants a career with the police force.
