PARTYGOERS looking forward to taking part in this year's Topsham fayre are reminded to prepare their floats and costumes for walking entries at the carnival.

People are also asked to make sure their cars are removed from the town's streets on Saturday, August 29 - the day of the carnival.

Percy Giles, police community support officer for Topsham, said: "People should remove their cars from Fore Street otherwise they will be removed because they will be causing an obstruction.

"It is always wise to use public transport to avoid struggling with parking."
