Children’s carnival smiles

THE smiling faces say it all!

For these youngsters from St Wulstan’s RC Primary School were over the moon to receive third place in last week’s Fleetwood Carnival.

They piled on to the back of the float dressed in sports gear to tie in with their superb Olympic-themed float.

Parents and children had spent weeks preparing the float to make sure it was ready for the big day.

They worked on sections using tissue paper to depict a sporting theme of boxers, synchronised swimmers, rowers and athletes.

And on the back of the float they displayed the symbolic five rings of the Olympic movement, and flags of all the nations taking part.

Sandra Byrne, who co-ordinated St Wulstan’s carnival entry, said: “We were all so proud to take part in this year’s Fleetwood Carnival.

“The children had so much fun despite the weather.

“I’d like to thank all family and friends who helped make our Olympic float look fantastic and look forward to creating an even better float next year!”

This year’s Carnival was judged one of the best for years by organisers despite the heavy rain.

And the event raised £1,550 for local good causes.
