Hundreds of people are expected to line the streets for Yatton Carnival but it means the High Street will have to close for a period.

Pupils at Yatton Federated Schools will be parading through the village as part of its annual fiesta.

This year has an animation theme and the children, with a little parental help no doubt, have been busy ensuring their costumes look great for the day.

The parade will set off from Cherry Grove at 2.45pm. It will snake through the High Street and end at the school playing fields, where a number of activities, stalls and games will be set up for people to enjoy.

A barbecue and live music will continue until 6pm.

School headteacher Jo Keeble said it promises to be a great day, adding she has her fingers crossed for good weather.

She said: “We are really proud of the carnival. It is a great village event.”

The procession means roads will be closed to ensure safety.

First Bus says it will divert X7 services on to the M5 tomorrow afternoon as a result. X2 services are not expected to be affected.
