Every year the carnival applies to the County Council for road closures. This year the council have asked that the carnival committee also advertises the closure on its social media or web site. The Police close the main road fully from 2pm for the parade to travel through the village. This is a rolling closure with the public being able to follow the last vehicle in the parade. There are also temporary delays prior and shortly after the parade.
