Louise Pitt – Play Group organiser at Bigbury Memorial Hall – writes:-
‘We have entered the Shrimps play group and Village Waves youth club into the Modbury carnival. We are making mermaid tails for the girls (approx 10) and I was wondering if anyone had any material that they could donate? Ideally mermaid tail colours but we aren’t fussy!
My plan is to keep it simple and let the girls cut out their own pattern. I am then looking for any volunteers with sewing machines that might be able to run a stitch around the tail and add a little elastic around the waist so that the girls can slip them on whilst on the float.
Any other ideas would be gratefully received!’
