The 2022 Bishop's Stortford carnival was branded a huge success - with daredevil dogs jumping through fire helping proceedings go with a bang!

Attentions turned to Sworder’s Field once the parade was overas visitors enjoyed a programme of activities in the main arena, including displays by the Lowestoft Dog Display Team and Coda Falconry, featuring birds of prey from the Middle East and South America, and music from the London Fanfare Trumpets.

At the bandstand, there was entertainment from The Belly Belles dancers, Woodwind of Stortford, St Michael’s Church of England Primary School, the town’s branch of the Pauline Quirke Academy, Bishop’s Stortford Ukulele Society and Hanako Ward.

There was also a carnival cruise flotilla on the River Stort where the mayor Cllr Dave Anderson asked visitors to help him judge the best-decorated boat.

Charities and community groups raised much-needed funds with dozens of stalls featuring competitions and challenges.

Isabel Hospice co-ordinator Renee Friend said: “The weather was not its best at the carnival but people still attended and enjoyed the parade and fun day.

“The team of Isabel Hospice volunteers ran an adults’ bottle tombola and a children’s sunflower tombola, both were very popular. Thanks to the generosity of visitors, the wonderful sum of £460 was raised, which could cover the cost of a two-hour home visit to 10 patients in our town by an Isabel community clinical nurse specialist in this our 40th anniversary year.

“We are extremely grateful for the fantastic support from our local communities.”
