Letter: Bonsall Carnival was a triumph for all those who took part

After three long years, carnivals are in full swing and Bonsall Carnival was back last Saturday. It’s always a highlight of my year and the locals dressed up the village as well as ever.

There were three good floats and a queen and king float. Six lovely well dressings brightened up the streets and rain didn’t dampen spirits.The stalls, rides and belly dancers entertained the crowds and Radio Derby DJ Twiggy judged the fancy dress with humour and even volunteered to go in the stocks and get wet.What more can you ask for on a summer Saturday? I’ll be back on Friday the 5th for the fireworks at dusk. Well done Bonsall once again.
