Crowds out as village celebrates Doddington Carnival

Posted on Updated on

Doddington Carnival 6

Spirits are riding high in Doddington today as a procession of floats parade through the village for Doddington Carnival.
The theme for this year’s floats was TV, and the Doddington Carnival & Sports Committee judged the best to be Mad Mum and Chums’ Noddy float (senior winner) and Lionel Walden School’s Shaun The Sheep float (junior winner, pictured above). Just missing out on the win were The George’s Top Of The Pops float (senior runner-up) and Ladies That Lunch’s Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom float (junior runner-up). The fancy dress winners will be added to this page later today.
Crowds were out for the event, with Church Lane and Newgate Street packed for the procession, which kicked off at 10.30am.
We will have more news and photos later today, including photos of the Doddington Sports Day, which kicks off down the Recreation Field at 1.30pm.
