THE streets of Neyland will play host to the town’s first carnival in seven years this July, thanks to the hard work of local organisers.

Starting in Honeyborough at 1pm on Saturday, July 12, the parade will make its way through the town, finishing at the Athletic Club grounds.

The carnival was last held in 2007, but organiser Malcolm Hawkings – secretary of Neyland RAOB - said this year’s event is set to be a roaring return to glory, with more support than ever before.

The parade will consist of at least six floats, which have been prepared by local pubs and businesses, as well as street performers and walkers.

Leading the procession will be Carnival Princess Cerys Evans, who was picked to represent the town at a ceremony at Neyland Athletic Club on Friday, June 13.

Joining her will be attendants Opel Raynor and Ellie Mai Rhead.

Local sponsorship has come from BDS construction, Milford Haven firm Austwel, Enviroventure, Rhyal Engineering, Neyland Golf Society, and Ryan Taylor.
