Burnham carnival 'crisis' meeting tonight after volunteer warning

Organisers of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge's annual carnival are hoping for a good turnout at their AGM tonight (Wednesday, April 11th) after warning that the event is in 'crisis' due to a lack of volunteers.

The organisers have distributed thousands of these attention-grabbing leaflets across the area in recent weeks to warn that without more local support the carnival "will close down".

The Carnival Committee hopes new volunteers will come forward at their annual general meeting, which is being held at 7.30pm in the Ritz Social Club in Victoria Street.

Chairman Phil New told "The Highbridge and Burnham Carnival Association are in desperate need of volunteers to help run the event this year."

"We have lost several volunteers over the past year and the police and Highways are asking us to do even more paperwork to be able to hold our carnival which we are finding hard to get done."

"No experience is necessary and all we ask is that you have an enthusiasm for the carnival and a willingness to help out."
