THE NEW committee overseeing the Wadebridge Carnival in August has promised a great family day out with a host of musicians coming to the town.

The new date is Saturday, August 9, and the parade will feature three samba bands from across the county, the kilted Kernow Pipers and, from Devon, the Bideford Youth Pipe Band.

Also making an appearance will be 20 motorcyclists of the Royal British Legion Riders' Club who will be revving up their Harley Davidson machines for the occasion.

After the procession, band the Gumbo Flyers will be performing at a carnival party in a marquee in Jubilee Field, with a bar run by Wadebridge Rugby Club.

Carnival committee chairman Robin Moorcroft said everyone had been working hard. "We are going all out to put on a great carnival in August that we hope will live up to expectations.

"We have managed to book some superb talent to perform on the day, with others still to confirm they will be appearing, but it's looking good for a great family occasion."
