This carnival was for you, Martin

November 28 2018

AFTER months of preparations, the Wells Carnival was the city’s biggest community event success, firstly with kind weather, some of the best carts for years, huge crowds, excellent marshalling and no hold ups.

Sadly one person was missing, Martin Coppell, Mr Carnival himself, due to being in hospital, and to say from all his colleagues, including myself on behalf of the Charter Fair in the Market Place, and Shaun and Krystal Rogers the fair operators, we all wish you a speedy recovery.

This carnival was literally for you, Martin!
