Carnival

Tarvin youngsters were blessed with warm weather on Saturday, 24th June 1988, when they marched through the streets in their Tarvin carnival procession.

The History Group scrapbooks included a photo of the Carnival Queen and her retinue.

Pictured are Carnival Queen, Lisa Jewell, aged 15, Rose Queen, Sarah Murray-Smith, 11,and Rosebud, Gemma Pedley, 3! Their retinue was not identified, perhaps our readers can recognise them!
