Loddon's scarecrow festival and carnival parade has been hailed a huge success by organisers.

The week-long festival concluded with Sunday's procession from Chedgrave to Loddon, with organiser Caroline Dwen describing it as the best yet.

The scarecrow festival with its theme 'anything goes' attracted large crowds of people throughout the week and Ms Dwen said the whole event had 'really brought the whole community together.'

Carnival performers included a lively set from the Anna Mudeka band as the headliners with support on the day from Simon Lovick, The Visitors, Invidia Rock and Sould choir, Isabella and Sofia, Hank the music man, and lively music and dance from Sambabooba, and Funky Feet.

Ms Dwen would like to thank all of the organisers for their hard work and the performers on the day.
