The weather stayed fine for a village carnival event.

The Brown Edge Carnival Queen's Festival saw a procession of seven floats, along with many people on foot, start from Bank End and make its way through the village to the playing fields off the main road by The Holly Bush pub.

This year's event saw the re-crowning of the St Anne's Church Brown Edge Carnival Queen Molly Fish.

Her mum, Cheryl, who is on the village's carnival committee, said: "No-one else came forward to be the carnival queen this year, so when Molly was asked to do it again she was more than happy to do so.

"The event went very well with the weather staying fine on the day.

"We had lots of people involved in the procession including other queens and their retinues, the school, first responders and a music band."

After the procession and re-crowning of Molly, the celebrations continued with a host of fun for all the family.

Cheryl added: "It was a really nice community event. I believe it has been going for around 60 years. We would like to thank everyone for their support for the event."

Molly, who has raised more than £1,600 for charity during her first 'regal' year, is aiming to continue with her fund-raising activities.

Cheryl added: "Molly is looking forward to another year of being the carnival queen."
