“The village’s playing fields on Tedsmore Road (SY11 4EH) will host the event with gates opening at 2pm and everyone’s welcome to come along and join in the fun” she added.

The event will also see a whole array of side stalls and craft stalls plus a tombola, bric-a-brac stand, bottle stall with the tea, cakes and ice cream courtesy of West Felton Women’s Institute, a fully-licensed bar, tasty BBQ, Amber’s Pizzas and the legendary carnival grand draw with a 1st prize of £100.

Admission is just £2 for adults and FREE for children/senior citizens with events and entertainment throughout the afternoon.

There is currently a couple of pitches left for stalls so if you’re involved in a “cottage industry” or have something interesting to sell then why not have a stall at this year’s carnival – to book a stall please contact Eileen on 01691 610629. Find us on Facebook for more information.
