The Shireoaks community was brought to life as hundreds gathered to enjoy the entertainment, food and competitions the village’s annual carnival had to offer.
Despite the gloomy weather, attractions such as a parade, brass band, and fairground rides drew many visitors to the event at Shireoaks Sports and Social Club.
Bouncy castles and a fancy dress competiton proved popular with younger visitors, and there was also the chance to win a free trial flight and other prizes donated by local businesses in the carnival raffle.
The event’s annual scarecrow competiton also saw entries popping up all over the area, with Newton Care Home on Shireoaks Road scooping first place with their Alice and Wonderland themed creation.
