Another successful carnival has taken place in Malmesbury. There were traditional events such as choosing the Butterfly Queen, the Athelstan Players revue and Petticoat Lane. Several local companies were happy to get involved, including Abbey Communications sponsoring Johnny Coppin in Abbey House Gardens, the Whole Hog hosting Question of Sport and David Hendry Cars supporting Carnival Soul Night.
This year Dyson sponsored the Carnival Procession, which was one of the biggest in recent years. Almost £3000 was raised in the street collection.
