The annual town event, which took place last weekend, included fantastic floats and a procession with the Sidmouth’s Carnival Queen Jessame Gigg and Grace Oxley as princess.

The carnival’s chairman Jo Hughes said: “We can’t thank the people that entreated for the floats competition enough.

“My marshals had quite a tough job - Ben and Richard Waring - they were fantastic, as were all the lads that helped.

“Teresa, at Woolbrook News, helped us out and looked after the judges in their café as well - they were lovely.

“It is a shame about the weather which meant we didn’t raise as much as we wanted. But that hasn’t dampened our spirits and we will be back next year to raise money to keep the Sidmouth Carnival going.”

Jo said she also wanted to thank the carnival’s committee who worked hard, all year round, raising money to keep the event going.
