Carnival day 2017 was on Saturday 5th
August, and the weather once again smiled on us. The village was
perhaps quieter than usual, but there were still plenty of people
around, enjoying themselves in the warm sunshine. The procession was
shorter than last year (thank goodness) and there were fewer
royalty due to a clash with another local carnival, but everyone
agreed it was a great day. This year we were please to
welcome the Melton Mowbray Toy Band for the first time and, having
travelled a fair distance to get to Bradwell their contribution to
events was much appreciated. Winster Morris brought a larger
troupe of dancers than last year and danced their way around the
village all afternoon, checking out all the pubs on the way.
Many thanks as ever to everyone who helped, took part, supported
the local stalls or simply came to have fun..
We had a dog warden from District
Council this year and, apart from one or two people seemed to
think the rules don't apply to them, this year was problem
As ever, special thanks to all those who
helped Council put up and take down the marquees. We couldn't do
this without you.
