Description

We are a majorette troupe who have been together for 20 years. We train once a week, with ages currently from 3 years old right up until 21. Not only do we provide a place for young Boys and girls to have somewhere safe to hobby,and off the streets, we teach new skills and discipline. We compete in competitions across the South West and in the South Somerset Illuminated Carnivals. We provide entertainment at various displays,including supporting many residential homes, various charities too.
Most recently raised money not for ourselves but for Brain Tumour Research and St Michael's.
We're applying, because we'd like to be able to provide new uniforms and equipment for our troupe. Currently we're having parents to help,but we do have low income families who are occasionally at times unable to help therefore their child could be at risk of being left out.

The troupe give a lifetime of friendship. And believe it or not therapy for any of our youngsters struggling with day to day lives.
We're all CRB checked and take great pleasure in what as a group we provide.
I really hope you can consider us.

Merriott Majorettes

I am proud to be part of this organisation because they are such a strong team. The girls and boys work so hard and well together,I almost feel it is a privilege to know such a great group. They get on really well,have fun and are like a big family.
They achieve so much in the twirling community.
