The Weather

During the morning, there were a few showers. The first part of the afternoon failed to show any rain, but there was a brief shower at 5:00pm.

The Floats

Longhope C of E School won the "best float award" for the third year running.
The Teletubbies came first in the "miscellaneous category".

The Carnival Queen & Princesses

This years' carnival queen is the same queen from 1955 - Jennifer Traub who now lives in Vancouver, Canada, and came over especially for the event.

I hope that everyone who went had a good time.

Thank-you to Longhope C of E School for the use of some of their pictures on this page.
