WHITCHURCH Colourful Community Carnival fell foul of the weather last Saturday as the popular community event was washed out.

The heavy rain that struck on the afternoon forced organisers to cancel the event on the day.

The procession was due to leave Ardglen Industrial Estate at 2pm and wind its way through the town to the Whitchurch CofE Primary School grounds, where the Carnival Fete was due to take place.

It is yet to be confirmed whether or not the carnival will be rearranged or when it is likely to be rescheduled for.
