Carnival looks for new volunteers to keep event alive
Published on: 01 Sep 2017
The Search is on for people to help organise next year’s Winterbourne Down Carnival. Organisers want volunteers to join the carnival committee, and are hoping those interested will come the their AGM on 25 September at the Methodist Chapel. The meeting, at 8pm, will decide whether the carnival can go ahead next year.
Sue Cessford told the Voice; “We will have to consider the future of our carnival if committee membership does not increase. We are desperately in need of people who have some bright new ideas, who would like to share in the fun of the carnival meetings and who have a couple of hours or so to share on the May Day weekend.”
The May Day event is hugely popular in Winterbourne Down, attracting good crowds for the day of celebrations, and it’s hoped more volunteers will secure the future for the foreseeable future.
