drop in the number of floats, only six this year with Royalty the theme. Judged by Toni Arthur-Hay, the Little Normans Playgroup came first, Tots and Co. second and the Carnival Queen, (Emily Durrance), third, with the W I winning the adult section. At the Fendick Field a large crowd saw "Prince Charles and Princess Ann" win the fancy dress. Entertainment was provided by the Brandon Steel Band 'Panache', Downham Markettes, Eaglewood Line Dancers and the Birds of Prey. Other attractions included the Methwold Fire Brigade and vintage cars and tractors.
Many stalls did very brisk business, the weather stayed fine and warm, and a good time was had by all. In the evening "Kenny and the Strollers" performed at the Sports and Social Club.
Thank you to everyone who supported the 50p stall at the CARNIVAL (and what bargains there were). £78 was raised and there are more things to sell so a stall will be at the hall on Scarecrow weekend this time individually priced.
