At the start of 2015 we decided we would try something a little different this year and that was entering the Carnival of Flowers Parade.After months of planning we formed Call My Midwives…… A modern take on the TV Series “Call The Midwife”.
The plot thickens with Sister Monica Joan, who would jump at this role playing a Nun? No other than Ros and didn’t she wear it well! Chummy, Trixie, Jenny & Patsy upgraded their wardrobe from the maroon to don the My Midwives pink.
The Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers is an iconic event for the Darling Downs bringing people from all over Australia and even other parts of the world. A true Spring filled day brought glorious sunshine, flowers, food and of course a massive crowd to watch the parade. We were very fortunate to be positioned right at the start of the parade and thankfully at that as our poor pregnant actor might not have lasted the distance given she looked as though she was overdue and carrying triplets. Ros was tickled pink to be positioned right in front of Fast Ed, we have never seen a Nun run so fast to get a photo with the Better Homes & Gardens star!
To top the day off we were named the WINNERS of the walking groups which we could not be more thrilled about. There were so many amazing acts in the line up and for My Midwives to be named the winners we could not be more proud. We all had such a fun filled day and our decision to join the Carnival crew was a well made one. The crowd enjoyed our performance hearing all of the laughs and spruiking along.
Thank you to everyone, a great day was had by all!
