A committee spokesman said: “Despite the wet and cold weather, many braved the elements in their festive costumes.

“The carnival committee would like to thank everyone for taking part and helping make our fund-raising event a success.

“Special thanks go to Spencer, his team and their customers at the Brandy Cask their sponsorship of the event,” he added.
