Sway Carnival Committee is very pleased with the preliminary report on the proceeds from the week. The carnival procession alone raised an amazing £994 which is more than double last year’s amount and more than previous years. The total raised by the raffles was £1083 and the takings on the the gate at the Fete were £527. Final details will be published when all receipts are in and all bills settled, but there will be over £2000 to distribute to Sway Organisations. So not only did we have a week of fun but also raised a good amount of money that we hope will benefit the various organisations in Sway. We would like to remind you that any requests for funding from the proceeds should be sent to the committee as soon as possible. The details are on the website.We would also like to say that we will be holding our AGM on Monday November 5th. at 7.30 in the Village Hall.
When the sun shone and the people of Sway could really enter into the Carnival spirit all the planning throughout the year becomes so worthwhile; and this year it certainly was a huge success.
Sway Parish Councillors Ted Fleat and Kevin Cripps are leading the charge to organise a small working party to clean the Sway War Memorial in good time for the Armistice Day service. If you would like to help you can find contact details for the parish council on our pages here.
