Combe Martin Carnival week has gone ahead once again despite hell or high water and still managed to leave plenty of smiling faces in its wake.

Despite a small committee of just six people and some very inclement weather, events went ahead as planned including the well-attended main parade, water fun day and raft race and the Wheelbarrow Fiesta (which could have used a few canoes).

Chairman Christina Perry said: "We are a very determined group and we were determined that come rain or shine we were going to put carnival week together and we did.

"Hopefully everyone enjoyed themselves - if we have achieved that then we have done our job."

There were some hiccoughs, including the last-minute cancellation of the end of week fireworks because it rained so hard, the electrical box for the pyrotechnics gave up the ghost.

Christina said open day had been a great success, as had the main parade and carnival bingo, but unfortunately the D-Day Dance and end-of-carnival disco were not as well attended.

She thanked the numerous people who had come forward to offer their time and services, as well as everyone who supported the carnival in some way - without which, the event would not be possible.
