The 37th annual village carnival drew hundreds of people into Horsley Woodhouse on Saturday, July 20.

A procession got the event underway - making its way through the village to the Sitwell Recreation Ground - and led by royalty in the shape of carnival queen Holly Harvey.

Among the other traditional activities were a craft tent, pony rides, children’s games, marching bands and a tug of war.
