Hatfield Community Committee hosted the climax of Dagenham’s Children’s Got Talent at Hatfield Hall, in Hatfield Road, in a bid to find the borough’s most talented youngsters.

Eight gifted performers battled it out as part of the enjoyable day, which raised more than £500 for the hall in the process.

Amy White, 14, and seven-year-old Keira Mazintas – both from Syue Garner’s School of Dance – shared the £100 prize money for their acrobatic routines entitled Children and Reflection.

“The two winning girls were fantastic, we just couldn’t choose between them,” said event organiser Nicola Papworth.

“The older one just blew us away and the seven-year-old girl was really sweet – you could see they had some strong moves.”

People of all ages enjoyed a range of other fun activities including a bouncy castle, stalls, face painting and even pony-and-trap rides and psychic readings.

“I was really proud to have five of my girls reach the final but to see Amy and Keira tied for first place was absolutely fantastic,” said school founder Sue Garner.

Miss Natalie’s Dance School will host another fundraising day for the girl’s competition trip to Disneyland Paris at Fanshawe Hall in Dagenham on Saturday, July 18.
