AMERSHAM CARNIVAL & TOWN SHOW 2016 – THANKS TO ALL WHO ATTENDED!

What a fantastic day was had by all at this year’s Amersham Carnival & Town Show on Saturday 9th July 2016! The weather behaved impeccably and despite the risk of some showers, sun rained down on King George V Playing Field to ensure we had a fantastic fun family day out!

The RIO themed Procession was a triumph with so many colourful costumes & designs, with this year’s judging being carried out by Mayor of Amersham, Councillor Mark Vivis along with his Deputy, Councillor Clive Morgan & Mrs. Christine Deppart – Head of the Council of Bensheim – our twin town.

ATC are delighted to announce this year’s Procession winners are:

1st Place – 1st Chesham Bois Scout Group

2nd Place – Woodside School

3rd Place – Revelation Majorettes

Woodside School Carnival Procession

Woodside School’s fantastic Procession group, who we are delighted to say achieved 2nd place overall in this year’ Procession

 

We would like to thank all the schools, businesses and community groups who took part for their enthusiasm and commitment to this year’s event!

ATC were again overwhelmed by the popularity of our Copacabana Beach! The sandy beach was packed from start to finish and we would like to thank this year’s Beach sponsors – Gatsby & Miller, Wilkins Kennedy LLP, Hadlands Estates and Tescos for their kind donations of sweets, buckets and spades, goody bags, beach balls and so much more!
