VIDEO: Cranleigh carnival fun

Chimney sweeps, Where’s Wally, teapots and hedgehogs were among the costumes worn by local groups who paraded down Cranleigh High Street last Saturday at the village’s annual Carnival and Fun Day.

The sun shone as spectators lined the streets for the procession, which ran under the theme, Best of British.

This year saw samba bands and lion dancers accompany the patriotic parade.

Awards were given for the best displays.

Overall winners were the Cranleigh Guides, Brownies and Rainbows for their British seaside themed creations.

Thousands filled Cranleigh common throughout the day for fairground games and local trade stalls.

Chairman of the carnival and member of the organising group, Cranleigh & District Lions, Brian Burt, said: ‘It’s a wonderful day, the sun’s shining for us, we’ve got a load of people here, I can’t wish for anything better’.
