Carnival fun at Terrington St Clement in 1979
Carnival fun at Terrington St Clement in 1979

Cold and wet weather put paid to many of the advertised events at Terrington St Clement’s long-awaited village carnival and heavy horse show in June, 1979.

Our picture shows members of the village women’s club smiling as they sheltered under umbrellas, having taken second place in the carnival floats adult section. But generally the hard-working organisers and a few staunch supporters looked out gloomily from various marquees as the Memorial Recreation Field turned gradually into a brown, soggy quagmire.
