Please dig deep when carnivals do return

April 28 2021

THERE’S one major issue I have with the article on page 13 of the April issue (‘How we long for carnival to thrill us again’).

To call carnival a free show is disingenuous at best.

The organising committees work extremely hard all through the year fundraising and need to raise at least £10,000 to cover costs.

Yes it’s free to attend but when carnivals do return in 2022 please dig deep and fill the collection buckets to ensure the future of our amazing carnivals.
