Thousands of residents were treated to a feast of entertainment as they soaked up this year's Potters Bar Carnival.

Stalls, fairground rides and live music lined the sun-soaked streets as the town’s most popular event swung into action on Sunday, June 10.

The procession – for many the carnival’s highlight – was led by Young VIPs Kassie Crow 12, Emma Brazil, 9, and Oscar-Jay Macdonald, as well as mayor Brenda Batten and several other special guests.

This year’s theme was the centenary of the end of WWI, which was reflected in several of the winning floats.

Committee member Peter Weaver said: “The public and stallholders thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon and the field was packed with the public of Potters Bar having a thoroughly good time.”

There were also art show competitions, won by Mount Grace, Oakmere and Ladbrooke, as well as an inter-schools contest won by Wroxham and Little Heath.

A carnival open evening is being held at 7.30pm on Monday, July 9, at Barker Street’s St John’s Methodist Church, where the public can give feedback on the day.

Grants will also be handed out to organisations that requested them.
