It's a Blockbuster
Thank you very much to everybody who turned out to support St Mary's Village Carnival and make it our best ever. The costumes and procession and Best Dressed Houses were fantastic and despite the lure of national sporting events on our big day, you helped us raise the magnificent sum of over £10,500 for local charities and good causes.
It was a superb event with more stalls and attractions than we have ever had before and a range of entertainment to suit all ages for a fun day out.
Special thanks must go to all members of the carnival committee who have worked so hard during the year to plan the event, and to everybody who rallied round to help with collecting goods, setting up the green, tidying up, running stalls, collecting money, selling tickets. Every helper is very important and is greatly appreciated. Thank you also to those who generously sponsored prizes, bought raffle tickets, or supported Clarabel or helped in any other way. We couldn't do it without you.
This year, as well as the fabric fund of our beautiful parish church, the main beneficiary will be Iain Rennie Hospice at Home, and the remainder of funds will be distributed to other local charities.
If you wish to nominate a charity to benefit from the proceeds of our carnival, please speak to Carnival Chairman, Peter Bennett. Later in the year, details will be published explaining how the funds will be distributed.
