Royal party out and about on Paw Patrol collecting funds for Newport Carnival

It was a royal weekend for Newport's carnival committee, which picked the party of youngsters who will represent the town for the coming year.

The Royal Party will be out in force for the carnival on June 8, but will also take pride of place in the Old Tyme Market, Civic Sunday and the Christmas light switch-on.

King for the year is nine-year-old Jarratt Cotterill, and queen will be Francesca Pryce, aged 10.

Prince will be Harrison Cornmell and princess will be Ellie-Mae Campbell, both eight.

Chloe Sydra Smith, nine, Scarlett Chebsey, seven, and Ruby Cornmell, also seven, will be flower girls.

This year's Royal Party with members of the carnival committee

The party were chosen at the end of a day of fundraising by the committee, who went out into Newport in costume.

They managed to raise £570 for carnival funds, and today organisers said thank you to everybody that had donated.

Graham Foster, chairman of the committee, said: "The people in town really entered into the spirit of the day and were very generous with their donations with approximately £570 being raised for the carnival funds. A very big thank you to everyone who donated and without the generousity its of towns people, businesses, and community groups, the carnival would not be the event it is.

"The weather certainly helped and fingers crossed it continues through until June 8 for Carnival day here in Newport."

The fundraising efforts included face painting and children's character s from Paw Patrol.
