Archant

Colourful contenders.

Sixty entries took part in Honiton and District Carnival at the weekend.

They included a number of large entries from Somerset.

Among those to cross the border, some for the first time so far this season, were junior club Rascals, of Ilminster, One Plus One CC, New Beginnings CC and Eclipse CC.

Although they did not bring their magnificent carts to Honiton, members of the mighty Gemini and Harlequin carnival clubs, both of Ilminster, were present to watch the carnival.

Bill Austin, the chairman of Honiton and District Carnival, said he was pleased with how the evening went.

“It went very well,” he told the Midweek Herald.

“The collections totalled £2,379 - that is £300 up on last year.”

He thanked all those who turned out to support the carnival.
