Some of our Carnival Floats in past years

This was around 1985 or 1986.  Mavis, Joan Carter and Cressida Potter leading.

At the Lingfield Bonfire Procession, it may have been a dark November night, and very cold, but that's no reason for a DEWI lady to stay at home and keep her clothes on.  The theme of the float was appropriately "Calendar Girls".


Yes, it was another year, another dark, cold, November night, and it was raining this time! But DEWI ladies did it again!  - this time with a "Cabaret" theme.

In 2009 the theme of Dormansland Carnival was "Dormansland on Sea" and our members won a prize for the most original interpretation by dressing as an Edwardian bathing party.

In 2008, the year of the Olympics, "World Sport" was the theme of Dormansland Carnival, so the sporting ladies of DEWI displayed there skills at synchronised swimming, while a few husbands dressed as able-bodied lifeguards escorted the float.

The Circus is coming to town.  Ringmaster Carol leading Sylvia, Neil, Ellen, Christine, Sheilah, Marlene, Dawn and two Shirleys.
