A MOR­RIS danc­ing troupe are cel­e­brat­ing af­ter pick­ing up an im­pres­sive 20 tro­phies in their first sea­son.

K-Stars, who are based at St. Thomas Church, Kirkholt, picked the awards in a num­ber of cat­e­gories in­clud­ing Troupe of the Year and Mas­cot of the Year at this year’s cham­pi­onships in Prestatyn, Wales in Septem­ber.

The group’s founder and trainer, Kirsty Fearne­hough, said: “Our first sea­son has gone ex­cep­tion­ally well and I couldn’t be any more proud.

“All my dancers have worked so hard over our first sea­son to­gether as K-Stars and we have won quite a few com­pe­ti­tions and tro­phies lead­ing up to our first end-of-sea­son cham­pi­onships.”

Kirsty added that she was proud of her team for em­body­ing the troupe’s motto ‘pas­sion, pur­pose and pride’ at each com­pe­ti­tion.

She said: “They turn up to prac­tice at night, week in and week out, and put so much ef­fort into ev­ery­thing they do and strive to suc­ceed - all our re­sults def­i­nitely paid off.

“We have now just set back up for our sec­ond sea­son and hop­ing to do well again in this com­ing year.”
