GRANTHAM’S traditional Grantham Carnival parade will go ahead, it was announced today.
Lincolnshire County Council highways have approved the route submitted a fortnight ago by the carnival committee, following a number of refusals.
Floats will gather at the car park in Watergate before setting along Watergate, High Street, St Peter’s Hill, St Catherine’s Road, Harrowby Road, Sandon Road and Hill Avenue into Wyndham Park.
Carnival committee secretary Sharon Evans said: “We’re pleased it’s been approved but it has been a long time coming.”
