The Ringwood Carnival Court stopped by on a royal engagement last week to thank Elliotts for sponsoring the carnival.
Rob Bown, trading manager of Elliotts Ringwood branch, welcomed Carnival Queen, Abbie Wilson and her attendants Charlie James and Ellen Puddle.
The Ringwood Carnival was first held in 1929 and relies on sponsorship from local businesses to ensure the much-loved event continues each year. As well as providing a day full of entertainment, the carnival also raises much needed finds for local charities and good causes. The procession will take to the streets this year on September 17.
