CHARLESWORTH AND CHISWORTH CARNIVAL NEEDS YOUR HELP
Charlesworth and Chisworth Carnival Commitee is seeking volunteers to help in the organisation and running of the Charlesworth and Chisworth Carnival!
To help us continue to put on the Carnival that you have all come to know and love we are looking for enthusiastic people to join the organising committee and/or to help out on Carnival day itself.
On the same note to ensure that we can continue to provide the sort of day that people have come to expect we would be very interested to hear from any one who has the urge to donate to a worthwhile cause, or who has a fundraising idea that they would be willing to run . Just a reminder that Charlesworth and Chisworth Carnival is not a profit making enterprise.
We’re also putting collection boxes in local shops so if you see any please donate your loose change.
The Charlesworth & Chisworth Carnival parade route will begin outside St. Margaret’s School in Gamesley at 12.30 on carnival Saturday, and end about 20 minutes later at the Village Green.
Enter a float in the 2017 parade!
