HUNDREDS of families lined the streets of Bishop’s Waltham for the 20th annual Carnival and Show.

Organised by Bishop’s Waltham Rotary, which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year, Southsea Batala Band kicked off the procession in the square, followed by classic and vintage cars leading up to Hoe Road Sports Ground.

The procession was loud and proud as it made its way down the bunting-topped High Street, with the theme Heroes and Villains.

After the booming thunderstorm of Saturday morning, sunshine beamed down on the crowds.

Rotary president Colin Carter said the event was important for community spirit.

“It’s becoming harder to put these events on, but if you don’t do it, you don’t get people out. It brings people together,” he added.
