Hartland Carnival committee secretary Julia Bole said: “The standard of entries in Hartland Carnival was magnificently high, as always.

“All our judges, including visitors from far and wide, did a sterling job in spite of the deluge, which made things extremely difficult for them.

“Hopps, Chapple and Yolanda from the Voice helped with judging for the Walkers this year, so thanks to them for coming.
