Band leader Roddy Maharaj and his lovely band assistant Shermain arranged that our reigning Queen; Amy Harris-Willock wore their Mythical LEGENDS costume “Aphrodite” and the 2016 MCUK Finalists wore their T-shirts which allowed them to blend in with the rest of the revellers.
The day started with a hearty breakfast served by our super hosts; Bernie Rocque who was assisted by her husband Tony, and cousins Athinia, Deborah & close friend Marylin.
After breakfast, make-up was applied by Soni Makeovers whilst photographer Dinesh captured the moment perfectly.
By 11am, we were all ready and made our way to meet the truck on Latimer Road. Team members: Deborah Herbert, Marilyn, Bernie Rocque, Lorraine McKie, Sherika McKie, Natina Mae-Whitter and Raymond Lewis acted as chaperones for our reigning queen and our 2016 finalists; Atlanta Cousins-Robinson, Charlotte Brailsford, Cheniel Henderson; Georgette Pratt; Jodie Hodgson; Kamala Thompson; Lorell Boyce; Maria Peters; Natasha Love; Tahirah Clarke; Tahmar Arayomi and Tanya Rose Brown and all concerned thoroughly enjoyed the vibrant carnival vibes.
