MALMESBURY School student Jade Dando showed she was more than just a pretty face when she came runner up in the Miss Swindon contest at the weekend.

Catissa Creighton from Royal Wootton Bassett took the title while Nicole Cox from Swindon won the Miss Wiltshire competition.

“I am so proud of the girls who won and I honestly don’t know how the judges picked the winners,” said a delighted Jade.

“I took part in the beauty pageant to help boost my confidence and to meet new people and it has done both things. I met a group of great people and even though I didn’t win, the runner up title made family and friends so proud of my achievement.”
