This will be followed by a procession around the community led by Warslow Silver Band, who will be joined by the decorated floats from the WI and Kids' Club, to the village hall.
At the village hall grounds attractions and stalls including refreshments, a bar, entertainment courtesy of the Warslow Silver Band, ice creams, children's sports, grand raffle, tombola, cake stall and games will be held.
