Miss Poole has her sights set on the Miss England Crown


People across Bournemouth and Poole are taking a big interest in the Miss England competition this year. Why ? Its because local girl and charity worker Samantha Bumbford is a hot favourite to take the big title!

Samantha is here telling us a bit about her journey so far, her charity work and her hopes in the competition.


Last year I competed at Miss England representing Dorset. So far In the past 3 years I’m the only  girl to come back to Dorset with a National title (Miss England Social Media). Through having this title I was invited to compete at the Miss England Semi-Finals at Kelham Hall on Tuesday 3rd July. I came away with the title Miss England Semi-Final winner Publicity Queen, which I am so proud of, as a result of attending over 500 events worldwide since last March. I appeared on CelebAbility 2 weeks ago and won a cash prize which I donated to beauty with a purpose which is the Miss England and Miss World charity. As a result of becoming a finalist of Miss England I have now been titled Miss Poole 2018. I’m hoping to be the next Miss Poole going to miss world.


Since being crowned Miss England Social Media, I am now an ambassador for many charities such as Help For Homeless Veterans, Dorset Cancer Care Foundation and am now the spokesperson for Dorset Children’s Foundation. I also work closely with many local businesses. Miss England is all about being that role model people can look up to. It’s not just about looking beautiful, it’s about the inner beauty and how we can help others. Our titles are a platform for purpose and we use it for good in our communities and around England.


I am so excited to be competing for the Miss England crown for part 1 & 2 of Miss England. Part 1 is held at Resorts World Birmingham on 26th & 27th July and we will be put through our paces with a sports round and brainy beauty round and part 2 Is being held at Kelham Hall on 3rd & 4th September where we will be showcasing our eco dress and someone will be crowned Miss England 2018!


My aspiration is to become Miss England 2018 and I am working hard to achieve my goal. I would love to win the title to show that you don’t need to be tall or stunningly beautiful but the main element to being a Miss England is about having a kind heart, being approachable and being passionate.
