News about this years event

“The Carnival Committee has met recently to consider plans for this year. Although the Government’s gradual relaxation of restrictions is a very welcome development there are still uncertainties ruling out the usual large-scale event. In addition, the Carnival Committee membership is currently very small, further limiting what we are able to undertake.
The Committee, are however, planning to hold a smaller family carnival event, on the afternoon of August Bank Holiday Monday, in St Katherine’s Car Park, subject to restrictions. A significant factor in all of this taking place is the need for additional Committee Members to arrange the event and more volunteers to provide support on the Day itself.
Previous experience in organising such events is not essential but further skills would be extremely welcome on the Committee; we are a very supportive group with everyone pulling together. If you would like to know more, please contact the Secretary on 01531 635129.
A further statement will be made during the next few weeks.
