Our Film theme Carnival Day is getting closer and this year we have a special Goods Collection Day on Sunday 11 June at Eaton Bray Village Hall from 12.00noon to 3.00pm. If you have items to donate to a stall at the carnival, we want to make it easy for you! Don't hang on to that clutter - instead, bring it along to the hall and allow our team of volunteers to help store and get your much needed donated items to the big event. Here is a list of what we are looking for... but please... no items of bulky furniture or junk.

What do we want to collect?

  • Unwanted gifts (what about those unused Christmas or Birthday gifts?)
  • white elephant goods
  • toys and games
  • home baking for the cake stall and tea tent ( we can freeze freshly made cakes)
  • books
  • plants.

We need plenty of these items to sell at the Carnival, and remember that every penny of our profit goes straight to local charities and good causes. Donating goods is a really easy way to help. The success of our carnival relies on the generosity of spirit of our villagers – that's why the St. Mary's Village Carnival has become such an outstanding success.

As Nick Wormley Editor of the Leighton Buzzard Observer says, "St Mary's Village Carnival is the biggest event of its kind in the area, and continues to grow in popularity, always attracting a huge audience for a very entertaining day out..." The Leighton Buzzard Observer is once again giving its generous support to our carnival this year by sponsoring our Best Dressed House Competition. You could be a winner this year! Get inspiration from your favourite movie and create an eye catching display at your home for 1st July.
