Hungerford Arcade: Hungerford Carnival-Part One

What great fun we had at Hungerford Arcade on Sunday, when the Hungerford Carnival came to town.  The weather was beautiful and the people turned up in their droves to watch and/or take part in Hungerford's bi-annual Carnival.  Of course, we were very busy and everyone, young and not so young, were very happy and excited.

The Hungerford Carnival was organised by Neale Marney MBE and his team of assistants. It was a great success.  Lots of money was raised by two young ladies, Becky Garland and Emily Grenfell for the Hungerford Garden Centre's, sponsored charity, Marie Curie Cancer Care.

The Parade was led 
by the Scots pipers who looked wonderful in their Highland dress.

Hungerford's adopted regiment, the 6th Battalion REME stationed at Tidworth, were really smart as they marched along.

On your Marks! Get set!.....
Drewitts Carriages were in the procession with their glamourous horses. (They supplied the wagons in the TV series, Mr. Selfridge). The 'Help For Heroes' Bikers from Wootton Bassett took part on their striking machines. The guy on the right insisted his machine could give them a run for                                                                   their money!
