Crowds turned out on Sunday to enjoy the Ilfracombes May Day celebrations one day earlier this year.A parade featuring Jack-in-the-Green, leafy lads and lasses and giants from North Devon Theatres Make the Move made its way along the High Street and to the seafront. It was led by town crier Roy Goodwin and accompanied by a lively beat thanks to street drummers Humdrumcondun-drum. At the clapping circle by Capstone, the crowds were invited to join in as Jack was stripped of his greenery and the spirit of summer released. The celebration was held a day earlier than its traditional Monday slot after missing a year last year. New organiser Kelly Raveney said the event had been amazing: The support from the community did us proud, I am so chuffed, she said. We just want to thank everybody who helped and I think it was a massive turn out. We have plans for next year we are trying to raise money for costumes and we hope to extend it even further. Its about keeping it alive, its amazing for Ilfracombe and it really brings everybody together.
