Still time for vol­un­teers to come for­ward to help car­ni­val

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Neighbourhood News -

PREPA­RA­TIONS are now well un­der way for the Wer­ring­ton Scout and Guide Car­ni­val.

The pop­u­lar com­mu­nity car­ni­val is tak­ing place at Wer­ring­ton Pri­mary School’s field in Am­ber­ley Slope, Wer­ring­ton, on June 26 and will in­volve a spe­cial pa­rade as well as a va­ri­ety of en­ter­tain­ment.

The event is be­ing or­gan­ised by a sub-com­mit­tee of the Wer­ring­ton Scouts and Guides Coun­cil and will raise money to go to­ward the up­keep of the scouts and guides’ head­quar­ters over the com­ing year.

This is the 41st car­ni­val to be held and as it is a fam­ily oc­ca­sion or­gan­is­ers are look­ing for res­i­dents’ help to make it an­other suc­cess.

The pa­rade will leave Wells Close at 1.30pm and heard to­ward Wer­ring­ton Pri­mary School.

Judges will de­cide which is the best-dressed float and the best cos­tumes be­fore the pa­rade moves off.

Af­ter the car­ni­val there will be a party and hog roast which will be held at The Vil­lage Cen­tre, in Church Street, from 8pm to 11.30pm.

Tick­ets are £8 for adults and £4 for chil­dren and all are wel­come to come along.

Last sum­mer, thou­sands of vil­lagers joined in the fun and the route through the vil­lage was packed with fam­i­lies view­ing the pa­rade which fea­tured scores of floats.

The event raised £7,000 for the up­keep of the Scout HQ while thou­sands more were raised by the char­ity stalls tak­ing part in the event.

If any­one would like to help in any way, whether it is in of­fers of lor­ries, equip­ment or do­na­tions, the com­mit­tee would wel­come ad­di­tional help or ideas.
