Residents can enjoy a multitude of stalls and activities at this year’s Collier Row Carnival and Family Fun Day which will take place on Sunday, August 5.

There will be crafts, shopping stalls, Go Bonkers Inflatables, zorbs, a dog show, facepainting and a food court and Pimms tent.

Lesley Haylett of the Collier Row Community Group, who organised the event, said: “We wanted to put Collier Row back on the map, and bring everybody back to the area, which is what I think we have done.

“This is our seventh carnival. Every year we try to do something different. So this year we have different activities, like the trampolining girls who do exercise routines with them.”
