Fwd: Accrington Carnival 2017

Subject: Accrington Carnival 2017

Last night a small group of people got together to talk about the viability of Accrington Carnival going ahead in 2017 following Accrington Lions withdrawing from organising it. The general feeling is that there is a desire for the Carnival to continue as it would be a shame to break a tradition that was started in 1959. However, the only way it can go ahead is with a large number of supporters and volunteers, plus some serious fund raising. A new community group needs to be formed and then the work load needs to be divided up and this all needs to be done quickly as time flies and there is a lot to be done.

A public, open meeting has been arranged for 6pm on Tuesday 15th November, at the Hyndburn Voluntary and Community Resource Centre on Cannon Street in Accrington.

It is essential that word is spread so even if you can't attend the meeting please send this to any of your contacts and let's get the whole of Hyndburn involved. If you are able to offer any support and want to get in quick with sponsorship or help in any way, please get in touch.

Thank you
