Carnival 2008 – Fairy Tales

Posted on August 2, 2008

This article was published in August 2008. Please see Latest News for more recent information.

I'm sure you will agree that our Carnival just goes from strength to strength. What a community event. Right up until the Day itself I thought we would all get very wet - how wrong I was. We need a little while longer to calculate how much was taken but it looks to be around £11,000 - another remarkable achievement - well done everybody.

All the results will be found on the Carnival website and so it is my pleasure to thank all those that attended, all that decorated their houses and all those who gave goods, time and cash to ensure the Carnival's success. Thanks also to the Right Revd Graeme Knowles, Dean of St Paul's Cathedral for opening the event and for judging the floats.

Finally, thanks to my magnificent Committee of Chris and Sheila Banks, Roger Cook, Sonia Dean, Katrina Grant, Gordon Gray, Theo Gray, Bernadette Hillman, Norman and Ann Lee, David Marriage, Heather Martin, Tony Morreale, Mark Saccoccio, Lin Sargeant, Rebecca Shaw, Vince Taylor, Peter Thomas, and Roger Wilkinson.

If you have a favourite local good cause that you would like to be considered for a grant from the proceeds of this year's event, or if you would like to be involved in the running of Carnival 2009, please or contact me through the website www.stmarysvillagecarnival.com.
