Every Year in North Cornwall the local towns and villages host their annual Carnivals. This is always on a Saturday evening which for us means a real rush with changeover. However the children do love a good excuse to dress up, parade along the street and enjoy all the fun of the judging, prizes and general run around time in the playing fields catching up with their friends and comparing floats. Despite the very unsettled forecast and a few heavy downpours this year’s turn out was commendable and made for memorable evening.
St Trinians from Coombe Mill
Agreed and designed by the children with a little adult help, we put together a winning float from our morning feed run trailer. I did have some strange comments from the last guests arriving as I showed them in dressed up in my nurses outfit just as we left!
Once there the boys had no problem abandoning their wigs and running off to find their friends and view the trophies still dressed in Clio’s school skirts and tights!
Our winning trophy, 3rd place in Best overall Carnival Entry!
