If you didn’t win, better luck next time!

We had a few items of lost property handed in during our Carnival, and while we managed to reunite some things there are some outstanding:

  • A child’s bracelet
  • A pair of sunglasses

If these are yours please get in contact with Carole at chair@knockholtcarnival.org.uk and she will try to reunite you!

Make sure you listen in to Channel Radio this morning to hear out publicity officer, Justine, talking to The Community Show about our fantastic Carnival, parade, and the charities we are doing it all in aid of.  Laura and Russell, the presenters, have given us incredible support in the past, and we’re looking forward to seeing them at the Carnival!

The programme has hit the mat

Our team of volunteers have been delivering programmes throughout Knockholt and surrounding areas.  Have you got yours yet?  Make sure you keep hold of it for carnival day, so you can see what is on where,  where to watch the parade from, and which charities it’s all in aid of!

The programme has been put together by Sharon of the Three Horseshoes and we are hugely grateful for the hours she’s put into this.  We are also grateful to all our advertisers:

Without our advertiser we wouldn’t be able to publicise our event, so please make sure you visit them soon!

Carnival Programme cover chosen

In the run-up to Carnival 2016 we asked the children of St Katherine’s to design us a cover for our programme and we had loads of great entries!  We have chosen a winner and will be sending the programmes off to print soon, so please keep an eye out to see if your design was chosen!

We’ll be displaying the entries at the organisers’ tent at Carnival, so make sure you pop by to see them.

Traffic marshals needed for the parade!

Part of our carnival tradition is the parade of floats, which wind their way around the village and end up at the carnival ground. Parades such as this are becoming increasingly rare but we think it completes our celebratory day!

We can’t run a parade though without closing the roads and that means we need your help – we need marshals to guide the floats, keep traffic off the roads, and direct people to the car parks.

Can you help? Please contact chair@knockholtcarnival.org.uk and we’ll be eternally grateful!

We are already looking forward to our Carnival on 9 July, and a large part of that is the parade through the village.  Having now chosen our theme – Cartoons and Comics – we’re taking bookings for floats, cars, marching bands, and even horses!  If you want to know more, then please contact us on floats@knockholtcarnival.org.uk.
