2014’s Carnival takes place on Saturday 21st June, so put that date in your diary while you’re thinking about it!

Last year’s Carnival was a great success again and this year will be the 47th consecutive year that it has been held (although its origins go back much further than 1967!). Obviously we’re only just into the New Year so more details will be released of stalls and attractions as and when we have them, but we thought with the current miserable weather, you might like to look forward to a (hopefully) sunny day in June when all that’s great about our village converges on this one special day.
