What a great weekend we had for the carnival. Weather was good both days. On Saturday we had a vintage open topped bus running between the regen centre & the village – bringing young & old alike down to the fun. In fact many went just for a ride round the village! Riccall school danced round the maypole – a big thank you to them. (the maypole was bought for the village from funds raised from carnival/Dickensian) This was followed by the Ukulele Band – thank you to them. Thanks to Mike for the background music in between. A variety of stalls & games including the ever popular pig racing & not forgetting this year the photo booth!!!
On Sunday the village green was very full – family. friends or just individuals enjoyed the sunshine, their picnic & the entertainment from Billy Bills & Graham Hodge. The Hare & Hounds were running a BBQ and castles4u had bouncy castle & slide in there carpark. At 4pm we pulled out 3 tickets for our very popular raffle!!
Maggie won the barrow of booze Janet-the barrow of Haribo’s Georgie – the box of Chocolate!!
Thanks to all who supported the weekend!!
