Dancers wow crowds

Children impressed the crowd at the May Day village fete with their demonstration of different dance styles.

The event was organised by governors from Coates Primary School and saw the children perform traditional Maypole and country dances as well as African dance.

It took place on the Coates village green and began with the procession of the May King and Queen, Nathan Wheat and Amy Quince and their selected attendants.

Member of the fete organising committee Jenny Gamble said: “This was the best attended yet, and I’m sure the good weather helped to draw people out.

“We had a fabulous afternoon and it was great to see so many charities and car booters coming along to raise money for their good causes.

“The Maypole dancers were, as always, outstanding. They put their hearts and souls into doing a good job and they never let us down.

“It was wonderful watching them performing traditional dances with their colourful dresses and skirts brightening an already sunny day.”

The event also included a dog show, barbecue and funfair.

Sponsorship for the event was kindly given by Carol and Mike at from the villages Spar shop and Easton Caravan Storage.

The school will also be holding a Diamond Jubilee lunch on Friday, 1st June.
