A village came to a standstill at the weekend as a floats and a procession took over a high street.

The annual Codicote Village Day, which was held on Saturday, was officially opened by Stevenage MP Stephen McPartland.

There was a little something for everyone as dancers from the Codicote Youth Project entertained visitors who were also treated to a magic show.

A wide variety of groups and organisations set up stalls on the day, from arts and crafts to homemade cakes.

Mr McPartland said: “I was delighted to open Codicote Village Day and really enjoyed the day which started with watching the floats going past in High Street. It was fun to join the parade and then make the awards to the winning floats in the main area where there were lots of different competitions and displays. With many different community stalls and funfair rides there was something for all the family.

“My favourite part of the day was the floats which so many people took part in. Everyone had amazing costumes and a lot of work had gone into decorating the floats with so many excited children. It was a fantastic day and my thanks go to the volunteers who organised it and all those who took part to make it such fun.”
