carnival and fete

Slimbridge is set for another spectacular carnival procession and fete this year, but urgently needs help if it is to take place on Saturday, September 14.

The organisers require the support of sponsors and more help for the day. Committee chairman, David Hunt, explains, Its great to see the village come together for such an event. But without sponsors support, more carnival floats, demonstrations from groups in the region, we cannot make a memorable day. We had such a tremendous day last year; it would be a great shame if it did not take place because of funding, participation or support.

The date is set for Saturday, September 14, with the carnival procession starting at 11.30am from Old Dursley Road, stopping at 12 noon in Slimbridge Legion Fete and arriving at the WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre for the start of the fete at 1pm.

Martin Spray CBE, WWT Chief Executive says, It was fantastic to see so many Slimbridge Parish groups and organisations come together as part of the Jubilee celebrations last year. The WWT Slimbridge Wetland Centre is looking forward to hosting the fete again this year and being involved in a project that is truly at the heart of the community.

For anyone interested in helping with the event, whether its donations, carnival float entries, sponsor enquiries or volunteer help, please contact David Hunt at davidfhunt@btinternet.com for further information.
