ON Saturday, I was present when the eel parade took place in Ely. I followed the parade from Cross Green to the Jubilee Gardens.
The parade was led by a steel band, followed by the eel, the dancers and the town criers.

They were stopping in the streets to watch, they were also leaving shops, and this included the shop staff. Most were smiling and some moving along with the music, even dancing.

I know the weather helped, but I would like to congratulate everybody who took part in the organisation of the event, and those who took part on the day.
