MAJORETTES are celebrating after their newly-formed troupe triumphed at their first-ever competition.
The Pennine Highflyers Majorette Troupe, who are based in Slaithwaite, took the top three awards at the event.
Troupe leader Kyla Bottomley said: “It was brilliant, I was very proud of the team.
“We would have liked to have been in the top three so we were shocked to win. Some of the girls were crying.”
The troupe beat four other groups to the top prize at the Yorkshire Carnival Association Dance Twirl at Colne Valley Leisure Centre in Slaithwaite on April 26.
Terrie-Anne Shaw from Cowlersley also won best mascot and Kyla best leader.
The six-strong troupe was formed in December and practises at Slaithwaite Civic Hall.
