The annual carnival for the villages of Edlesborough, Eaton Bray, Northall and Dagnall was as colourful as ever on Saturday.

Music was this year’s theme for St Mary’s Carnival on Edlesborough Green for decorating floats and houses on the procession route.

Over the past 20 years the event has raised more than £200,000 for local charities and organisations and repairs to the historic church in Eaton Bray. This year the charities were the Leighton First Responders and 1st Eaton Bray and Edlesborough Scouts.

The procession started at The Orchards, Eaton Bray, and arrived 45 minutes lateron Edlesborough Green, where attractions included children’s entertainer Magic Dave, Birds of Bray wild bird display, Dan Cordell chainsaw wood carver, family dog show with sausage race, the Charmborough Ring portable bell tower and a classic vehicles display.
