Claire, Anne, Keith and Phil  from Greyfriars surprised the crowds, volunteers and members of Greyfriars with their 60th Anniversary three tiered cake carnival entry!

Their entry was supported by the RCA, Revolutionary Cheerleaders Academy who practice weekly at Greyfriars and liven up every Wednesday afternoon with their energetic sessions.

Birthday celebration music was provided by Anne and the cheerleaders stopped outside Greyfriars where they danced and sang to the waiting crowds.

Tea on the lawn was well supported as passing carnival watchers enjoyed some home made tea and cake and relaxed to the music of Burley Band.

One passing family said ” It was absolutely lovely, relaxing on the lawn, drinking tea and listening to music – a really lovely English Country afternoon!”

An amazing day was had by all involved, although some achy arms the following day!

( and although it is most definitely NOT about the winning, we were thrilled to receive 3rd Place in the Evening Procession and Highly Commended in the afternoon!)

Our thanks go Letters and Logos, Doughty and Elliots of Ringwood for their support.
