SCHOOLS and other groups in Marchwood took to the roads for another top notch carnival.

Five huge lorries, Trigger the Train and a parade of smaller vehicles, top-of-the-range motorbikes and scores of walkers lined up at Southampton Football Club’s Staplewood training ground and headed off to the Lloyd Recreation Ground.

The high standard of the floats that took part on July 11, 1998, meant a close-run thing for the top spot.

But it was the elaborate and colourful Camelot theme of Marchwood Infant School that won the day.
