Once again the Country Fayre managed to pick just the right day for this annual event. With horrendous rain the day before, the sun shone brightly as thousands of people turned up to witness the fun and frivolity that ensues every year.
The procession was a little down on numbers this year compared to other years with Operation Stack accounting for many of the other ‘Carnival Courts’ not attending.
But with the emphasis very much on being a family community event, as always the committee delivered!
A string of visiting dignitaries, made the annual visit to the town including the Bishop of Dover and a number of Mayors including Emily Arnold form Folkstone along with Michael Lyons from Hythe and Tom Dawes from Lydd. Dymchurch was represented by Council Leader Roger Wilkins and the District County member Carole Waters helped to fill up the VIP enclosure alongside New Romney Town Mayor Patricia Rolfe .
Again the people of New Romney should be grateful for such a fantastic event, that puts the Cinque Ports town of New Romney on the Carnival map!
