The night started with some heavy rain but dried out later for the procession. This year we had an increased number of floats and an incredibly good turn out justifying our decision to make a small modification to the route being used by the procession. As another change, the committee decided to advertise a theme for walkers with a couple of extra classes, to encourage walkers. This did have limited success,the theme being Wheres Wally.

We also this year ran a new competition in conjunction with Holsworthy Primary School to design the cover of the carnival programme. This was Won by Evie Clarke.

Our elected royalty positions for the year were filled by Yasmin Greenway as Carnival Queen and Jamie Knight as the carnival Princess. Congratulations to them both.

The annual window dressing took place and the results were as follows:

Winner: The Hat Shop

Second: The Card Kabin

Third: Floral Designs

With Highly commended awards being given out to Reflections, Thomas Westcott Accountants and The Den. We would like to say a big thanks to all who took part.
