Best Float for DADS at Downham Carnival
gallery/float 2

At the Downham Carinval this year, which was held on the end of May Bank Holiday Monday (27th May), DADS once again entered their float. This year it was themed around our upcoming autumn musical 'The Wizard of Oz'. We are very pleased to announce that we won the award for Best Float again! 


Massive to congratulations to the guys that organised and prepped stuff for the float:


  • Carrie-ann Lister
  • Caroline Pocock
  • Jamie Robinson
  • Phil Melia


As well as a massive thank you to all of the other DADS members, KIDDS members and friends of the society who attended and helped in any way. This was either in costume to sing and wave on the float, help set it up and take it apart or to walk alongside and hand out leaflets promoting the society.


The team maneged to hand out over 700 leaflets promoting 'The Wizard of Oz' and the rebooted KIDDS group, and it seems to have generated a lot of interest!


Our thanks also go out to Mark from MC Photography for coming along to take pictures of our group and the float. You can see all the photos from the day here.
