A VILLAGE park is set to benefit thanks to a “perfect” carnival day.
Residents and visitors descended on Sychdyn to enjoy the village’s annual carnival, which was held to raise funds to support the local community.
This year’s beneficiary is the play park on Vownog Road and all proceeds from the carnival will now be focused on improving the area.
Andy Griffiths, Sychdyn carnival committee chairman, said: “It was a fantastic day. It was beautiful weather and the turnout was outstanding.
“Every penny we make from the carnival goes back in to the village. It was just a perfect day.”
Carnival-goers were treated a variety of entertainment and activities, including the crowning of the carnival queen and the village’s own Sychdyn’s Got Talent event.
With a theme of supporting the armed forces, many turned up in fancy dress.
Mr Griffiths added: “People stayed for the full day and thoroughly enjoyed it.
“We’ve raised a lot of money which goes back in to the village.
“We’ll be asking for suggestions as to how we can go on and improve the park.”
Former headteacher of Sychdyn Primary School, Nigel Parry, also returned to help open the festival and crown carnival queen Lois Wake.
