The King And I Carnival Float

Saturday, 16 July 2011

A big thank you to all the cast and children who came along on Saturday to help publicise The King and I. The rain did not spoil our fun and a great time was had by all.

With a highly decorated and colourful float, beautiful costumes and a fantastic atmosphere, we were delighted to win the ‘Highly Commended’ award for the second consecutive year. 

A massive thanks to Tim, Liz, Carole and Vicky and all the children for giving up their time to be on the float.

A huge thanks, too, to Alan Bugg, Bob Taylor, Paul and Rachel Finch, Paul Rees, Louisa Pickles and Fize Khawaja for helping to build the float in the pouring rain and then helping Roz Chalk supervise our many children. A special mention should also go to Sam Smith and Elly Battisby for coming along to assist the building work, Mike Chalk for transport, Dan Wainman for his assistance, and of course Simon Chalk for being the main construction and ‘ideas man’ behind the float.

The weather may have been miserable to start, but the sun finally came out as the procession started, and a good time was had by all.

You can relive our day out, by viewing a selection of photos taken by Rachel Finch in our Facebook Album.
