It was good to see your coverage of this year's Carnival in Kemp Town (The Argus, June 19).

I was there nearly all day and shook hands and took photographs of hundreds of residents and visitors.

The atmosphere was magical and the weather was kind to this unique area of the city.

I would like to congratulate the organisers, stall holders and performers who made this event so successful.

Well done Kemp Town you did us proud.
