Turnip shy proved a popular attraction

MICKLETON held one of its largest carnivals yet during the Queen’s jubilee weekend.
For the first time ever, a large marquee was put up housing nine craft stalls, while there was also a choice of traditional games including hook-a-duck, skittles, crazy golf and coconut shy.
Committee member Terry Wilson said: “We have a bit of a difference.
“Instead of coconuts we have turnips.”
Stalls included bric-a-brac and plants and the village hall was decked out to celebrate the jubilee.
The fancy dress included all sorts of jubilee related characters with children winning prizes for dressing as St George, a Queen’s guard, a corgi and the Queen herself in a unique pushchair converted into a carriage.
