  • Carnival 2019

    This year’s Carnival theme is - UNDER THE SEA

    Following on from resident feedback your Carnival committee have made some big changes to this year’s Carnival schedule.

    This year the Fete will be merged with the Family Fun Day and will be held on the first Saturday of Carnival week – June 29th.

    The procession will move to the final Saturday – 6th July and begin at 5.30pm.

    Sway Boule will now be the final event on Sunday – 7th July, where we will also be making the draw for the Grand Raffle.

    Did you know that in 2002 three Sway organisations received donations totalling £600. Last year (2018) a total of £4,300 was donated to 23 Sway organisations. Very impressive progress! So, let’s see if in 2019 it will see rise even higher!
