Hundreds enjoy day out at Wickhambrook’s annual carnival
Hundreds flocked to Wickhambrook on Saturday for the village’s annual carnival and procession.
Schoolchildren from Wickhambrook Primary School joined members of the village’s WI, the boys’ brigade band and a fleet of vintage and classic cars to parade through the village’s streets, ending up at the recreation ground.
Here the crowds were treated to a host of food and craft stalls, a Punch and Judy show, a bbq, beer tent and more cakes than you ever eat.
The event also ran alongside the village’s long-running annual horticultural show.
Carnival committee member Deirdre Smith said: “It was a brilliant day and the feedback has been excellent.
“We must have had several hundred come along on the day - there were an awful lot of people on the recreation ground.
“We were lucky and had no rain.
“It was a beautiful afternoon, it was just right.
“It was a big windy though. We had a few problems with one or two of the gazebos that took off but it didn’t spoil things.
“It all made for a really fun afternoon.”
Committee chairman Sue Burton-Griffiths, said: “The procession was great.
“We didn’t have one last year because we didn’t have a band so we were pleased to put it on again.”
