HUNDREDS of excited schoolchildren marched through Worthing on Saturday with their impressive interpretations of Sussex through the ages.

The annual children’s parade, which began in Denton Gardens, weaved its way along the seafront and town centre, ending at Steyne Gardens.

It was the culmination of six months of preparations, with parents and children working tirelessly to produce large pieces of artwork that represented the county through time.

Winnie the Pooh, a giant bucket and spade and children dressed as trees of the South Downs were just a pick of the imaginative themes.

Organiser Lindy Stannard hailed the hard-work of all involved and said the event was a huge success.

She said: “The schools work so hard. The teachers put in so many extra hours at school to do the artwork.

“It all becomes one big event and brings everyone together in this moment.”
