There were prizes galore – for Best Dressed House ( The Meaning family of Victoria Road), for Best Dressed Shop ( Frances and Laurence Mitchell of the High Street), for Best Miniature Garden, Best Painted Pebble, Treasure Hunt, Window Spotting, Crossword, Limerick….
The crowd waited with bated breath……
Some prize winners were full of confidence, like Stella Taylor, who won the Best Miniature garden,’I’ve worked on it all week.’ Seen here with Anne Toms, who judged the competition, and has the Gallery in the High Street.
Others needed a little help.
No one was more excited than Beth Davies when she found out she’d won a prize.
The glass trophy for Best Dressed Shop was awarded to Mr. and Mrs. Laurence Mitchell, after escaping unscathed when the Mayor dropped it. It will be safer in their hands than in the Mayor’s. ‘Careful with that Steve…..’ as he dropped it.
And finally there were very well earned thanks to those who worked so hard for so long, to make the Carnival Week such a success.
The Chairman, Chris Waddington is thanked for all the hours and hours and hours he puts in to Carnival Events throughout the year – November 5th, Christmas Carols in the Square, Christmas Lunch, Pancake Day Race, Duck Race at Easter.
See you at the Parade, lining up on the Green 2.45 Saturday! Bring your rain coats!
