Along with many other traditions, young royalty from surrounding villages wore their best outfits and attended the carnival in style.

Paul Downing, chair of Bradwell Parish Council, said: “I honestly believe it was the best carnival yet.

“There was such a great turn out this year. It is very important to me that all the villagers get involved as it is a great way of engaging the community.”

The carnival also had collections for Macmillan Cancer Support, local schools and Mountain Rescue.

Today, Bradwell will host a family treasure hunt followed by a street fair along with other activities throughout the week before closing the event on Saturday with a comedy night in the Parish hall.
