Carnival planners hope for a fairy tale ending
Posted on December 13, 2007
Plans for next year's Edlesborough and Eaton Bray carnival are well under way, despite a rumour that it had been scrapped.
This was a misunderstanding following the cancellation of the village's Christmas street market.
The street market was called off after the organisers were landed with a £1,000 road-closure bill.
But Carnival chairman Peter Bennett said this was nothing to do with the 2008 carnival, which will take place on Edlesborough village green on September 5.
"The theme will be Fairy Tales and we are delighted that the carnival will be opened by the Dean of St Paul's Cathedral, the Very Rev Graeme Knowles, who ,was at one time head teacher of Eaton Bray primary school.
"We are already taking bookings from businesses and individuals for pitches on the green on the big day because the carnival has become such a popular community event."
The main beneficiary for the 2008 carnival will by the East Anglia Air Ambulance Service and organisers hope to match 2007's record profit of £11,000 which was given to local charities and good causes.
