Sudbury Town Carnival, 24th August
 
Parading through Sudbury town commences at 12.30pm.

Many people will remember the carnivals of yesteryear, throughout the 70s, 80s and 90s, Lucas as it was then were very much in the forefront, there is plenty of photographic evidence in the down stairs Bar of the Delphi club.

Terry Coveney, who is sadly not with us now, had developed hundreds of photos with many of them found at our web site, at sudburycarnival.org, but the earliest recollection of a Sudbury carnival that I can find is around the early 50s where I have found a float that appears to be dedicated to the cause of Women through the ages, with the Suffragettes, nurses from the 2 world wars.

Florence Nightingale and representatives from the WRVS with Grace Darling who was glamourized by the media of the day as a result of the part she played in rescuing the survivors of the ‘Forfarshire’ which had floundered on the rocks off of the Farne islands.
