PICTURE SPECIAL: A hair-raising time had by all at Warwick Mop

A HAIR-RAISING time was had by all at Warwick Mop.

The annual mop fair transformed the Market Square into a thrillseekers paradise on Friday (October 14) and Saturday (October 15).

With everything from white-knuckle-rides to the more traditional carousels, candy floss sellers and side shows, there was something to satisfy the most ardent fairground-goer.

The mop was officially opened on Saturday (October 15) with the reading of the Royal Proclamation by the town’s mayor Coun Parminder Singh Birdi, supported by the town crier and other town dignitaries sporting their traditional robes.

But this didn’t put them off having a go on some of the rides in true dare-devil fashion.

There was the auctioning off of the first slice of the pig roast to raise cash for the mayor’s charities.

While those seeking a further fairground fix can look forward to the runaway mop, which will be held on Friday (October 21) and Saturday (October 22).
