Tonbridge Carnival sucess!

On Sunday 17th June a marvellous bunch of members took part in this year’s Tonbridge Carnival parade. We have done this for the past few years but this year we really surpassed ourselves thanks to the organisational efforts of the super Tina Montrose. The Carnival’s theme this year was ‘Animal Capers’ and Tina picked up a WI campaign to end plastic soup in our oceans and designed plastic jellyfish from old plastic bags and umbrellas.

Our jellyfish looked really effective especially en masse and I’m proud to say we won Joint-Third prize in our category.

A huge thank you to Tina who took charge and organised us this year. It was lots of work and it wouldn’t happen without brilliant volunteers. More thanks to everyone who took part and got into the spirit of proceedings with expert costumes and dressed up small people and pushchairs! It was a really fun day. Thanks everyone!
