St Mary's Village Carnival 2015The Carnival was a brilliant day for the community; there were so many positives including plenty of new volunteers to help at next year’s Carnival.

The lower of these figures is the best we have achieved in the past (on a like for like basis). Anything more than £12,500 would be a record.

I can only thank everyone who has worked so hard to make this year’s Carnival such a success.
