WHEN The Cotswold School was forced to cancel this year's prom after Government restrictions, two enterprising mums wanted to make sure their daughters and friends didn't miss out on leaving Year 11 without a send-off.

So Carole Bartlett and Jayne Major organised a mini-prom for their daughters and friends at Lower Swell village hall.

Carole said: "There was a red carpet entrance with mocktails, photo booth, buffet and prom celebration cake, huge Prom 2021 balloons, and disco (playlist compiled by Lucy Major, using suggestions from all the guests).

"And to give a special topping to the evening, Stow-on-the-Wold ice cream seller Cotswold Hills Ice Cream arrived midway through the evening to surprise the girls."
