Crowds lined the streets between Vicarage Road in Milton and East Street to see this year’s Sittingbourne Carnival Parade pass with the usual noise, cheers and excitement despite the clouds gathering.

I met some very mischievous elves today at the Carnival parade who wished to raise awareness of and funds for the Sittingbourne Christmas Lights Association which are entirely funded from donations.
I expect like most people we don’t give much thought to how these things are paid for and I can just imagine how much effort it is to raise sufficient funds year in year out.
