ENERGETIC youngsters from Ilfracombe Junior School who provide all the colour and spectacle of the town May Day Celebrations have been chosen as our Class of the Week.In fact we at the North Devon Gazette decided to nominate them ourselves, for all the hard work they put in not only in the May procession, dancing and drumming, but through the year.The dancers and drummers are members of the school's folk dance and drumming clubs, run by Garry Thompson and Niqui Moore."They practise as a club all year and we also practise specifically for the May Day festivities," said Garry."Then as the time approaches we hone their skills and help them to become more focussed towards the day itself, where they were a credit to the school, their families and the town."Niqui, who heads up drumming group Humdrumconundrum, added: "We're all very proud of them and they have been complimented by many people who were there on the day, not only for their skills but their impeccable manners, behaviour and joyful attitude.
