It was a brilliant week of events thanks to everyone that joined for the ‘ansum’ breakfast on the Sunday, the team worked amazingly well together with the kitchen led by Bex Wilton, it was like a well oiled machine, a spokesperson added: “Cheers maid. We hope your all enjoyed your breakfast.”

Wednesday was quiz night and what a night that was. The tent was full and once again Sue “The Quiztress” Dribble challenged the grey matter with a host of television questions. The ‘Tudy Chips and Chilli’ went down a storm and thanks were expressed to Jenny Keat for being chief chip prepper, and Selina for cooking up another stunning chilli.

Thursday was a fun night for the football club with all enjoying the bouncy castles.

Congratulations went to Maddison, Kenzi and Piper Keat for their winning entry in the creative community competition, their scarecrow “The Queen with rock you”.

Then Friday’s big match the Legends vs the Superstars. The park was packed and the boys put on a great show. The spokesperson added: “Well done to both teams for entertaining the masses, Lee’s legends ran out winners and reclaimed the Carnival cup.”

Chabaa was cooking up a storm and Moorlands Grill, well what amazing burgers.

Saturday was the big day, the return of the carnival. The spokespserson said: “To be honest we weren’t sure how many would come and I don’t think we would of imagined the turn out we got.

“The field was a sea of people all enjoying the day and having fun, as always Kittows hog roast was super popular, it was amazing to see our little village once again putting on a show for everyone to enjoy, you’ll never be disappointed with a St Tudy event, we will give anyone a run for their money.
