2008 Lambourn Carnival

24 August 2008

After a dull start to the day the sun shone for a spectacular Lambourn Carnival Parade. The Lambourn carnival raises funds for local charities and organisations and this year was once again a great success with a large number of entries which formed a colourful parade as it wound its way through the village on Sunday afternoon.

Thank you once again to Pete and Mary Williams and the Carnival Committee for organising yet another splendid village occasion.

Note of Thanks:

The Carnival Committee would like to thank the Village for their support for this year's Carnival. It was a great credit to all who entered. It shows that Lambourn does not want to loose their Carnival. Thanks also to the many people who assist in anyway, for without this help the Carnival would not take place.
