…and were delighted to be given a delicious homemade lunch…with even a special gluten-free lunch for Kitty; just look at the lovely cake!

Melksham Carnival competitions 13032016 - 2We started with the babies and cuties – so hard to choose between such lovely babies and toddlers! Lovely to meet the babies and their parents. We didn’t confer at all, just marked individually and the carnival committee did the sums, so it was exciting to see the winners.

After the babies – and lunch and a bit of a stroll – it was on to the Fairy Princess, Butterfly Princess, Princess, Prince and Queen…

Thank you so much Melksham Carnival for such a fun afternoon; looking forward to the carnival itself on 23rd July!
