The Carnival Field is looking superb, houses have bunting up throughout the village, and the sun is shining. It’s going to be a fantastic day!
We can’t wait to see you in a few hours. Make sure you know when the roads are closed, where the parade goes, and don’t forget your money for buying ice creams and tombola tickets!
We hope you have a great day!
We can’t tell you what they are otherwise they wouldn’t be surprises!
Only two people on the committee know the details of all the floats, making sure that there’s intense rivalry between groups to produce the most innovative and spectacular displays. The parade organisers collected the themes a year ago to ensure that there was no overlap, and now it’s only a day until you can see what everyone’s come up with!
We can tell you there’ll be music, there’ll be dancing, there’ll be walkers and drivers … but beyond that, you’ll have to come and see for yourself. Work out where you’re going to stand on the parade route now!
St Katherine’s church will be hosting a special Early Bird service on the day after Carnival (on Sunday 15 July) at 9am, where they invite everyone to come dressed in their carnival outfits. We hope to see as many of you there as possible!
