The Red Arrows may have been missing from the Cromer skies earlier today but they were looping and diving through the town’s streets as part of tonight’s all-hooting, all-jiving carnival parade.

Cromer Hospital’s renal dialysis unit patients and staff piloted a squadron of cardboard Red Arrow jets, created by dialysis patient Paul Welsh, 51, of Honeysuckle Close, North Walsham.

Other entries included another tour-de-force joint effort by the Marsh and Mindham families, of Roughton Road, Cromer, who have been taking part for more than 30 years.

Their Willi Wonka float boasted a real waterfall running into a river of chocolate on which a paddle boat floated carrying costumed family members, winning them first prize in the towed trailers class.

Overall winner was a pirate ship and its crew from In Touch Systems, of Hurricane Way, Norwich.

Some 60-70 total entries weaved their way through the streets in a 90-minute procession which was slightly smaller than last year when the Olympics and Queen’s 60th Jubilee had boosted numbers, according to carnival chairman Tony Shipp.

“It was a very good procession, a high standard of entries and lots of variety, which stretched all the way round town. We had really good support and perfect weather – we couldn’t really ask for more,” he said.
