"We also need people to help us during the lead-up to Carnival. There are lots of things that need doing from the Saturday, right up to the night and afterwards for counting the collections. Any help would be gratefully appreciated."
Anyone wishing to help can contact either Jamie Hawke on 01278 781279 or 07812095706 or Jan Paul, secretary, on 01278 784607.
