EVEN a flurry of wet weather could not dampen the day as scouts paraded through an East Staffordshire village.

Dozens of people turned out to enjoy Rolleston Scouts’ carnival braving wet and windy weather to cheer the youngsters on at the annual event.

The event featured a procession that included several floats and which ended at the group’s headquarters, in Station Street, Rolleston, where a collection of stalls selling a range of items from bric a brac to baked goods were set up.

Graham Jacks, group scout leader, praised everyone involved in the event.

He said: “The carnival was well supported despite the arrival of some miserable weather.

“The Rolleston Beavers won first prize for their walking float during the procession, with Rolleston Pre-School netting first prize for the float youngsters had created for the day.

“The procession really did look good and this was testament to all the people who helped make it possible. The money we raised will boost the coffers of the group and I would like to say a big thank you to all who helped out.”
