Around the West Country there has been a long tradition of carnivals, where a town or village might wish to enter their own colourful floats and send these to the other towns/villages on their ‘circuit’.  In Newton Poppleford the Carnival Committee co-ordinated the efforts of various local organisations that each submitted entries for the carnivals  –  some as walking entries, others on floats.
