Huge CONGRATULATIONS to Harry Burt and Sienna Vestey-Smith on becoming our Prince & Princess for 2019 at the Selection evening on Saturday 23rd March 2019. Also to Jaden Heckford and Annabel King on being selected as their attendants.

We would like to thank St Nicholas Church for letting us hold the event there this year, and Rev. Jane Burgess for asking each entrant questions, also Poole Town Crier David Squire for the winners trophies, Debbie Cox of Cardberry Parade for the decorative balloons and Jason & Debbie Spiers of our principal sponsors Richards Estate Agents.

The Carnival Committee would also like to thank Maggie Fray for all her hard work in organising the event.

Our first Carnival Christmas Pub Quiz was held on Wed 19th December at the Holme Bush Inn. The pub was filled to capacity with competing teams of four, and the event was a resounding success enjoyed by all.

There have been requests that we should hold a Spring Quiz event - so keep your eye on this website!

 

Working in response to suggestions received, we had made plans to erect an illuminated Christmas Tree at Windgreen for Christmas 2018.  Our generous sponsors agreed to provide additional funding and the Parish Council gave their approval for this to go ahead.

Unfortunately, it is necessary to replace the existing electrical post from which the lights would be powered, and the council were unable to confirm that this work could be completed by the required deadline of 23rd November 2018.

Consequently, we have been forced to amend our plans and we now aim to erect the Christmas Tree in time for Christmas 2019.

 

 

In recent years, the Carnival entertainment at the Recreation Ground has been opened with a release of balloons.  This year, the Carnival Committee has decided to discontinue this practice, acknowledging the negative impact on the environment that this can have.  Although we cannot change past practice, we can select better options in future.

This year, the Carnival will be opened at the Recreation Ground with the firing of a Field Gun (using blank charges, of course)!
