HUN­DREDS of peo­ple across Sawtry en­joyed all the fun of the fair as this year’s Sawtry Car­ni­val proved to be an­other as­tound­ing suc­cess.

The fun kicked off at lunchtime on Satur­day with the an­nual tra­di­tional pa­rade start­ing at Fen Lane – with a trans­port theme.

Vil­lages donned cos­tumes fea­tur­ing all things re­lated to trans­port, even the Ti­tanic, while oth­ers rode along on scoot­ers and trikes.

And af­ter the pa­rade, fam­i­lies en­joyed an af­ter­noon of fun and sun­shine in the grounds of the old school hall where there was some­thing for ev­ery­one to en­joy.

Young­sters were spot­ted hav­ing a go on ca­noes and karts, while oth­ers ad­mired the dis­play of vin­tage ve­hi­cles and a dis­play from the Wy­ton Model Rail­way Club.

There was plenty of food and drink to keep hunger at bay with a hog roast and bar­be­cue.

The an­nual car­ni­val is or­gan­ised and run by a small group of vol­un­teers called the Sawtry Car­ni­val Com­mit­tee and is sup­ported by Sawtry Parish Coun­cil.
