Have your say

Pinchbeck Carnival is an annual village event which has been running for over 30 years and is held in mid-June.

Every year the hardworking committee organises a competition to appoint a Carnival Queen and attendants to act as royalty for the event, held at Rotten Row playing field in the centre of the village.

Last week the competition took place in the village hall at a well attended event judged by Craig Delaney together with Tulip Radio’s Jan Whitbourn plus stand-in Chris Carter. They deliberated over the final choice from a well supported entry list of local girls all keen to have a starring role in this year’s carnival.

The Junior Princess is eight-year-old Emily van der Weyden, Senior Princess is Cecelia Tulloch-Cotton (10) and the 2014 Pinchbeck Carnival Queen is Annabel Stockdale (11).

They will all officiate at this year’s Pinchbeck Carnival procession which starts at noon in Wimberley Way and finishes at the main venue, Rotten Row playing field, on Saturday, June 14.

Many attractions for this event have been booked and already this year’s event is shaping up to be a fantastic day out for local families while raising funds for the village hall and other local causes. Be sure to put the date in your diary: Saturday June 14.
