The Billericay Carnival 1969

The Brownie's Float

At the age of nine and a half I remember searching through my Mother’s wardrobe to find a dress to suit the Brownie’s theme for the carnival in 1969.

I remember standing on the float and driving slowly up the High Street, waving to the crowds lining the road.  There was lots of clapping and cheering.  I also recall people in costumes walking along beside the floats with buckets to collet donations. People also threw coins for us to catch if we could.

My Dad took this picture as we came round Sun Corner, you can just see the Police Station in behind the float.

Are you in the picture too? If so add a comment below.
