A fantastic time was had by all at Watton Carnival on 15th September. As in previous years Wayland Chamber of Commerce was delighted to sponsor the Stage, which hosted local musicians after the open-air Sunday Service in the morning. The High Street was alive with stalls, games and rides for the children, including a display of live farm animals. Local businesses served refreshments for the considerable number of carnival goers, many of whom stayed for the duration of the event. The Annual Parade, led by the Phoenix Pipe Band included the Mayor, Pat Warwick, who rode on a majestic open-topped old red fire engine, a Norfolk police car marked up with ‘Stop hate in Norfolk’; marched up and down the High Street to the delight of the onlookers. Treasurer, Heather Nunn said; ‘the Chamber is so pleased to sponsor this annual event and it was such a joy to see so many local people enjoying themselves in our wonderful Norfolk town.’
