CORONAVIRUS NEWS 2021
As always public health and the safety of our participants and spectators is our number one priority.
We will continue to follow Government guidance and advice, and we are closely monitoring the ongoing coronavirus situation in the UK.
Over the coming weeks and months, we will continue to work with our town committees, our entrants and the local authorities about our 2021 planned illuminated carnival processions in November.
These are extremely difficult times for everybody, and our thoughts are very much with those who have been deeply affected and impacted by Coronavirus.
Our carnivals are run entirely by volunteers who have to fund raise annually to finance the building of their entries, there is very little sponsorship available!
Each carnival holds a street collection which helps local charities and community groups raise funds as well as helping to fund the carnivals, so please give generously.
Your support is vital to the continuation of our carnivals in their present standard!
