To all those people who attended the Grampound Carnival Fete on 3 September, to all those who entered the carnival procession and to all those who came to watch and support the procession.
The weather forecast for the day had been really bad with continuous heavy rain predicted for the day and into the evening. There was a fair amount of rain in early afternoon but the stalls in the hall and the marquees were well supported. Then, miraculously, the rain eased off and many floats, walking entries and carnival and fairy queens from other villages turned up and we had all the ingredients for a successful carnival. By 6 p.m. as the procession started, the rain had stopped and we put on a very full and successful carnival.
So, well done to all of the committee members and other volunteers for all the hard work involved in putting on the event.
Roll on 2017!
