CROWDS streamed into Ashover for the annual May Day gala, with maypole dancing, welly wanging and other traditional customs to welcome in the summer months.

“We lost count of the number of people who told us what superb event the carnival was and how much they enjoy the warmth of the welcome they always receive here” said festival organiser, Rosemary Early.
