Crowds have a super time at the New Mills carnival

New Mills was filled with 'super heroes' when the town's carnival made a welcome return.

Crowds lined the street as the procession, made up of Marvel and DC superheroes, including Superman, Captain America, Spiderman and Batman, made their way through the town. 

The superhero theme also paid tribute to those who were on the frontline during the pandemic, including doctors and nurses and those who worked on creating the vaccine. 

Also recognised were the RNLI and fire service. 

The celebrations saw a great response from the local community, with all the local schools and a number of nurseries taking part in the colourful event.
