Hundreds of carnival fans lined the streets of Nailsea to watch the colourful procession entertain the town.

A record number of people took part in the procession on Saturday afternoon with 500 floats and walking entries this year.

The overall winners of the spectacle were Nailsea Bikers with their costumes and props based on the popular ‘Allo ‘Allo TV show.

Amanda Harrington, from the Friends of 1st Nailsea Scouts, which organised the event, said: “It went really well. We had more people in the procession than ever before and there was a great atmosphere. We are delighted with how it went.”

Grove Preschool won first place in the preschool category, 1st Nailsea Scouts scored gold in the under 18 walking class and Nailsea Bikers were best of the over 18s.

The procession finished at Scotch Horn Leisure Centre, where families enjoyed a funfair, games, live music and a barbecue.

The money raised will go towards the scouts’ hall rebuild, which should be completed during the next couple of weeks. The two buildings in Clevedon Road have been knocked down and are being replaced with a new hall for the beavers, cubs and scouts.
