ON the day of Presteigne Carnival Presteigne firefighters took a charity walk from Knighton to Presteigne carrying their big ladder.

The group took it in turns to carry the ladder.

They started in Knighton walked up Presteigne road over the top of stonewall hill, down into Norton and on to Presteigne and their fire station.

A little while later carrying the ladder again they joined the carnival procession finishing their walk at Wentes Meadow.

They raised hundreds of pounds for the Firefighters Charity and Presteigne Playgroup Project.
