“It was another very successful competition for us,” said Pamela Burns, senior club coach and club director.

“I was extremely impressed with Chloe and Hettie, who were competing in their first external competition.

“Chloe has only just turned seven, but their cheeky routine clearly impressed the judges, scoring 26.17.

“Daisy Abigail and Libby performed excellently too, outperforming 15 other partnerships in their category.”
