A group of Waveney roller skaters competed against some of the top dance clubs at a prestigious event.

The nine Waveney Roller Skating Club members travelled to Kettering for their Winter Solo dance competition, which was the last contest of 2017.

A club spokesman said: “This took place over two days with some great dance clubs competing. Our skaters did extremely well with large numbers of skaters in each groups.”

The competition began with the solo dance with Georgia Boyd, in novice, finishing in 11th place. In the next novice group Lauren Nursey finished in 9th. The inter bronze solo dance event saw Francesca Rumsby finish in sixth before the masters solo dance event saw Jackie Huggins finish in fifth and Michelle Huggins was 12th in the inter-silver solo event. With the free dances held on the Sunday the novice free dance skaters saw Ella Moore 5th, Lauren Nursey 11th and Caitlin Forster 18th.

Next to skate was Georgia Boyd in novice group and Brooke Enticknap, with both skating well as they just missed out on a place on the podium finishing in fourth place. Charlotte Harker skated well in her preliminary group and also took fourth.

In the inter-bronze event, Francesca Rumsby was 9th with Michelle Huggins in sixth.

The club spokesman added: “Well done to all the girls and to our coach Carla Smith for all your hard work and support. We would also like to thank our sponsors Docwras.com in Great Yarmouth and R&S Meen Autos in Beccles for their ongoing support.”
