Local Brading bell ringer Libby, daughter of Jane Followill, also a Brading ringer, has been doing the rounds of local Island carnivals this year and doing rather well for the Sandown Carnival Queen float Queen of the Nile.
Libby was selected as one of the Queen’s along with others at a competition earlier in the year and is representing Sandown Council on their float for this year. Several Island towns and villages hold carnivals annually with the season culminating with a big illuminated procession at Ryde, this year on September 2nd, with the procession moving off at 8.30pm.
All floats entered in their respective classes are judged and Sandown is doing rather well with several firsts under their belt from carnivals that have already taken place.
