WOLVERLEY revellers enjoyed a day of fun in the sun when the annual carnival was held in the village.

Residents turned out in droves to enjoy the procession, including six floats and marching bands, and all the activities on offer.

Judges rated the floats before the procession with the adult winner being the Kingsford pub and the runner-up being Wolverley Secondary School.

Wolverley Sebright Primary scooped best junior float while Starlight Dance Academy was runner-up.

The procession’ led by West Midlands Service Pipe Band, made its way to Memorial Hall field via Fairfield Lane and Franche Road with participants collecting donations from residents along the way.

Carnival Queen Sophie Caldwell officially opened the event with a song while there were other performances from West Midland Fire Service Band, Wolverley Players, Morris dancing from Wolverley Sebright Primary School, Bliss Gate Dog Training, a performance from TAGB Taekwondo and HCW Wrestling.

The village’s own Svartland Vikings also set up camp at the top of the field, Wolverley Memorial Project set up a real ale bar and there were a host of stalls and attractions.

A spokesman said: “This year’s event was a resounding success and the Carnival team would like to thank everyone who helped and supported us this year.

“All proceeds from the Carnival and our traditional May Day Fayre will go to Wolverley-based not-for-profit organisations.”
