The launch of this year's spectacular St Mary's Carnival got off to a dazzling start when four little girls from Eaton Bray and Edlesborough were picked to star in the event.

Eight-year-old Melissa Sibley, from Edlesborough, has been chosen as this year's carnival queen. With her leading the carnival parade will be Eaton Bray youngsters Bethan Roberts, eight, as her princess, and Emma Baldwin, nine, and Katie Neal, 10, as attendants.

Carnival Queen, Princess and Attendants

This year's carnival, being held on Edlesborough Green on July 7, has the theme of favourite adverts and will feature some new ideas, including a climbing wall for the more adventurous, and a silent auctions for those looking for a bargain.

As usual the day will kick off with a colourful parade through the two villages while the Green will play host to stalls, sideshows, games and arena events.

Proceeds from the day will be split between St Mary's Church, the Edlesborough Cemetery Access Project and local groups and organisations.

The carnival committee is always looking for volunteers to help make the day run smoothly. If you can offer any help contact chairman, Peter Bennett.
