Horbury Academy-based SPICE Dancing with a Difference will this year enter three competitive teams into the Winterguard Championships, held January-April.

Organiser Brian Hitchcock said: “We would like to express our thanks and appreciation to Wakefield Council for the support we receive.

“Without this help we would find it very difficult to continue our voluntary efforts for the young people of Wakefield.”

The first leg of the competition took place on Sunday in Stoke on Trent, where the six to nine age group won silver and the nine to 14 came fourth, narrowly missing out on bronze. And an older member in the group’s A Guard was placed third.

The group’s next competition will take place at North Bridge Leisure Centre in Halifax on Sunday, February 7.
