FAMILIES flocked to enjoy fun in the sun at Wolverley Carnival and Fete over the weekend.

Over 2,000 people attended the afternoon on Saturday, July 2, as The Carnival Queen Miette Swift marked the opening with a resounding rendition of the Beatles classic "Come Together".

The procession, the biggest for some years, was led by the West Midland Fire Service Pipe Band and was followed by a decorated Land Rover carrying the Carnival Queen, Princess and Rosebud.

Floats and walking floats from organisations within Wolverley were among the attractions.

The senior float prize was won by the Queens Head Wolverley, Starlight Dance Academy clinched the junior float award, while Sebright Cygnets Nursery were named the walking float winners.

Among the entertainment included music from The Pipe Band and Them Good Ol’ Boys, as well as archery, tennis, trampolines, bouncy castles and food stools.

Charles Sherrey, Chairman of the Wolverley Carnival Team, said: "It was a lovely summer’s afternoon and, fortunately, the rain passed us by.

"We had an excellent display of Morris dancing and a superb performance by the Pyramid Street Dancers both from the Primary School.

"We then had the Bliss Gate Dog Training – Obedience Display Team which kept everyone extremely well entertained.

"Before the audience had time to draw breath on came The Starlight Dance Academy who performed several dances with children of all ages.

"The children were then entertained by Andrew Healey the Magician who kept them all enthralled by his magic."

Grants will be given from funds generated by the Carnival and Mayday Fayre to non-profit making organisations and projects within Wolverley.
