Upminster Majorettes have won four top prizes at a national competition.

The group take part in regional competitions throughout the year and have won the best troupe in the London area at the UK Federation of Majorettes Nationals three times.

Last month the troupe won four first place prizes, three second places and one third place in solo and duo competitions.

One member Charlotte Kendall won a first place in her baton solo, which means that she can now compete at championship level and also represent Upminster in the UKFM Colour Guard for 2013/14.
