Well, the weather gods smiled upon us, especially after last year, and from the early reports we are getting it looks like this year’s carnival was one of the best ever. There will be a full report in the next magazine, but in the meantime I would like to give a very big thank you to the committee for all the hard work you put in on the day, and before and after. Rob and Rachel, Lorraine and Jamie, Yvonne, and Nick deserve all your thanks, together with all the extra people who help us on the day. Also a big thank you to all our advertisers and sponsors, without whom the carnival would not happen. Every year the cost of the event increases, and it is becoming harder to cover the outlay. We will have to think long and hard over the winter as to what can be done to help the situation and keep the event free to all. Any suggestions are very welcome. Next years carnival will be on Saturday 30th June 2018, so put the date in your diaries, and in the meantime please follow us on Facebook for regular updates as the planning moves forward.
