St Mary’s Village Carnival 2014 – Winners Best School Float!

We are so excited to have again been associated with Totternhoe Lower School’s winning float entered in this year’s procession at the St Mary’s Village Carnival.  We were again happy to provide space and materials at the shop for the Parents Association to put together all the beautiful and creative work they had made with the children.

This year’s float was based on the Wizard of Oz and featured some fantastic artwork including a wonderful rainbow made up of the pupils’ hand prints, a superb Tin Man and a fantastic Scarecrow.  There was the Emerald City, Dorothy’s House, a twister and lots of other beautiful artwork. The children really got in to the spirit of the occasion and dressed up in some excellent costumes.  A huge well done to all those who took part, their hard work was rightly rewarded and we’re so happy for the children and parents.

Here are some pictures of the float with the parents and children preparing for the procession.  The float can also be seen at the Leighton Buzzard carnival on the 12th July.

(Update 12th July, We’re pleased to announce that Totternhoe School float won second place at the Leighton Buzzard Carnival!)

(Update 22nd July, More photographs and video added.)
