St Mary’s Village Carnival School Float Winner 2015

We’re thrilled to report that the Totternhoe Lower School float entry for the 2015 St. Mary’s Village Carnival Procession has won first place in the school category.

The children, staff and Parent’s Association truly outdid themselves this year with a superb float themed around ‘The Little Mermaid.’  The children had a great time dressing up with some excellent costumes on display.

With an astonishing level of detail the float received many complimentary remarks from those lining the route of the procession through Eaton Bray to Edlesborough.  A superb model of Ursula complete with tentacles loomed menacingly over beautiful coral reefs with King Triton standing guard and mermaids sitting in shells.  Everywhere you looked there was a feast for the eyes with no detail overlooked.

At the Cottage Garden we were again honoured to be involved, providing materials and work space for the Parent’s Association to meet, plan and work on their contribution.  There will be another chance to see the superb float at the Leighton Buzzard Carnival on Saturday 11 July 2015

Huge congratulations to all involved and a very well done for all your hard work. Here are some pictures from the day along with a short video.
