Volunteers needed for the 2016 Carnival

In 2016 we will once again be seeking volunteers to help during the carnival day with setting up/manning stalls/manning the road closure areas and tidying up.  Please contact Fred or Faye on 01454 851059 to add your name to our ‘volunteer list’.  All we ask is an hour of your time to help make this carnival day another great success – you don’t need to join the committee or attend any meetings – just give us a bit of your time on the day.  For further information please contact either the Secretary on 01454 851059 or the Chairman on 01454 772072.
