Fleetwood Royalettes dance troupe enjoyed one of its biggest successes for years in the an end-of-season championship event.

The group emerged with a haul of 15 trophies at the Tameside Morris Dancing Organisation Championships (TMDO), held this year at the Prestatyn Sands Holiday Park, North Wales.

We’re really pleased with the results, this is one of the best successes we have had in years

Royalettes won a string of top awards, and came second in others, competing against almost a dozen other dance troupes.

The Royalettes, established in 1986, are run by co-principals Shirley Farrington and Sammy Hemphill.

They are divided into age sections, the Babies, Tinies, Seniors and Juniors.

Shirley told The Gazette: “We’re really pleased with the results, this is one of the best successes we have had in years.”
