VILLAGERS lined the streets to see one of their community's biggest carnivals for years.

More than 20 floats flanked by fancy dress characters and majorettes took part in a parade as Trimley St Mary and Trimley St Martin joined forces for a celebration.

The procession, which had the theme of Old and New, started at 2.30pm on Saturday, and headed along Faulkeners Way in Trimley St Mary before finishing at the sports and social club in Trimley St Martin.

A number of shields displaying the crests of the two villages were also tied to all the lampposts in the area.

Festivities continued on the social club field, where there was a fairground, more than 30 classic cars, a children's games tent, barbecue, disco music, and majorette and karate demonstrations in the arena.

Proceeds from the event, which attracted around 2,000 people, will be distributed to local organisations later in the year.

Trimley carnival committee chairman John Sills said: “It was most successful. We had a very enjoyable day.

“The karate and majorette demonstrations went off very well. It would just be nice if a few more people offered to help organise the event.”
