It’s hard to imagine that it’s almost a month since the 2014 Somersham Carnival Week ended.
Thankfully, the day was sunny – unlike the following weekend which was ruined by torrential rain.
The Carnival Committee would like to say a HUGE ‘Thank You’ to all of the organisations, businesses, community groups, and individuals, who kindly, and most generously, offered their time, expertise, services, and prizes. We would also like to thank all of the people who attended and supported the events that ran during Carnival Week.
Your support helps to ensure that Somersham Carnival continues to not only run, but to grow too.
As the memories of Carnival Week get further and further away, we’ve compiled a selection of photographs, kindly supplied by JLC Photography Ltd. What was your favourite part? Tell us in the comments space below.

The Carnival Committee would like to thank everyone who brought their owners to the Novelty Dog Show. It was great to see Somersham’s finest furry pals compete on Sunday 15th, for the title of Best In Show.
This Sunday sees the biggest event for our canine friends – the Novelty Dog Show.
Get down to Norwood Playing Fields (behind Victory Hall) with your dog on Sunday 16th June from 1pm. With eleven different classes, there should be at least one category for your trusty hound to compete in… including some that owners can join in with too!

GRAND FINAL: Best In Show
Entries open from 1pm (entry fee is 60p per class), so you’ll need to hand in a completed entry form (download it below) to the show organisers, and then you’ll be all set for when the judging begins at 1.30pm. The winners from each of the eleven categories will compete in the Grand Final. Rosettes will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place.
Puppies, pooches and hounds of Somersham take note – have you got what it takes to ‘go for gold’ and take home the ‘Best In Show’ title?
This year, the Novelty Dog Show will take place on Sunday 17th June at Norwood Playing Fields outside Victory Hall, Somersham.
If your dog has got what it takes, then you can enter them into as many classes as you like. You’ll need to complete the entry form (below) and pay the 60p entry fee for each class they’re entered into.
