The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - News -

MEM­BERS of a city ma­jorette troupe are twirling their ba­tons with ex­tra pride af­ter win­ning a haul of medals in a na­tional con­test.

Har­mony Ma­jorettes, based at The Fleet in Flet­ton, com­peted in the UK Fed­er­a­tion of Ma­jorettes’ na­tional fi­nals at Cam­ber Sands in East Sus­sex, in May.

The group, which is cel­e­brat­ing its 12th an­niver­sary, took 21 of its mem­bers who brought back a to­tal of 46 awards be­tween them. Lucy Day and Fran Mabe - both aged 15 - se­cured a place in the UK Fed­er­a­tion of Ma­jorettes’ Colour Guard, which rep­re­sents the Fed­er­a­tion at events such as Re­mem­brance Day pa­rades.

Alex Keen, who runs the troupe with her mother Louise Sergeant, also took the Ken Cheshire Am­bas­sador Cup, which is given each year to some­one who is a good am­bas­sador for the Fed­er­a­tion.

The troupe were also over­all win­ners in the Cam­bridgeshire area con­test at the fi­nals, mean­ing they beat many of their lo­cal ri­val groups.

Alex said: “It was a big achieve­ment for us.”
