A volunteer-led majorette troupe from Swindon have their pom moms at the ready as they prepare to march into 2019 after their 14th successful season.

Britannia Majorettes and Miniettes Of Swindon is celebrating after a successful season following performances at the Royal International Air Tattoo and the British Transplant games held in Bath.

Since the organisation was founded in 2004 the brass ensembled come marching troupe have gone on to enjoy various achievements over the years including winning first place at the Old Town Festival Procession, opening the British Transplant Games, and performing at The Royal International Air Tattoo.

A spokesperson for the organisation said: "We were founded not by the Nolan sisters who were 'in the mood for dancing' but the Ellis sisters who were and still are 'in the mood for marching'. Both sisters are former majorettes so between them have a great deal of experience and knowledge.

"We welcome members from 4 years of age, and our aim is to build self-confidence, work within a team and make new friends. As well as performances for the public we do lots of team fun activities for the girls which have included sleepovers, ice skating, the cinema and even a trip to the fire station to name a few.

"So after our 14th successful season, we are now starting to prepare for 2019. If there is anyone who would like to become a member of this amazing team then don't hesitate to contact us.

"If any company would like to support Britannia in any way of sponsorship or donation we would be very grateful."
