MEMBERS of a roller derby team got their skates on for one of their bouts of the summer.

Mean Valley Roller Girls hosted A Midsummer Night’s Scream at Catmose Sports Centre in Oakham on Saturday.

About 200 people from teams in Lincolnshire, Leicestershire, Derby and Leeds attended the event.

Team captain Emma Grove, aka Diva La Lunatic, was delighted with how the show went.

She said: “It was a really fantastic event. We had teams from far and wide come to play and we were very pleased with the turn out.”

The team is holding a recruitment day at Stamford Queen Eleanor School, Green Lane, Stamford, on Friday from 7pm to 9pm.
