Fabulous performances at South Cerney Fete from CCDA’s intermediate junior, pre junior and performance groups, as well as our new cheerleading group. Alongside fantastic solos from Molly, Caley, Hollie and duets from Elizabeth & Maddie, Hana-Jo & Charlie. All rounded off by a surprise Flashmob in South Cerney High Street.
