The event, which had the theme of farming characters, saw people from around the area dress up as scarecrows, honey bees, sheep, pigs, chicks and cows to take part in the festivities.

As the procession made its way around the village, the carnival princess, Gracie Livingstone-Bond, and her attendants Sophie and Katie Kimpton, led the walkers and floats.

This year’s carnival was the 41st consecutive event.

The ‘Best Group of Walkers’ was awarded to 1st Somersham Cubs and Beavers who dressed as animals from the story Sheep-Pig.
