Superheros and Super Villains seen in Romsey!

23 July 2017

The planning was over, the paint was dry (to start with) and  every hand was put to the pump to decorate the lorry Harris Transport had kindly lent us.

The sun shone as we started putting our float together – the top secret theme of Superhero & Super Villain was finally unveiled!  There was stapling, sticking, stacking and stringing going on and everyone was enjoying the sunshine.  Everyone changed into their Super costume – from Super Scout to the Joker – and the judges came to view our efforts.

Then came the rain!  After patiently waiting for the results 3rd were jubilant to have received the Best Decorated Trade Vehicle!  So spirits were high ready for the actual carnival procession – fingers were crossed that the rain would stop in time.

No such luck – as Winnie the Pooh says “The rain, rain, rain came down, down, down in rushing, rising riv’lets” and it did NOT stop all the way round Romsey.  3rd Romsey have every right to be very proud of their young people, even though they were wet and cold they kept on waving all the way round the carnival route and had big smile for all the brave souls who can to watch and support!

Thank you to all the wet people who stayed behind and helped us to take the decorations off the lorry – your help was very much appreciated in very trying circumstances.  Also huge thanks to our young people who were brilliantly costumed and extremely well behaved, the Leaders for giving up their time, the parents who were good humoured and happy to do anything required, to our lovely driver who gave up his Sunday afternoon to drive us, the Carnival Committee for organising the event and the mad people of Romsey who stood in the rain waving and donating money to good causes!
