A new home has been found for the Havens Community Carnival, set to take place today, Saturday, August 2.
Broad Haven school is the traditional venue for the annual extravaganza, which attracts over 1000 visitors, but due to building works the carnival has moved to the village’s Sandyke Road Football field.
“We are all turned around this year!” said carnival committee member Dave Hopewell. “The fancy dress parade and floats procession — led by 2014 Carnival King and Queen, Jenson Ritchie and Amelia Hardwood — will be in reverse now, starting outside the school gate at 1.30pm, and walking northwards along the seafront, Milmoor way and up Sandyke Road to the Football field.”
The theme for 2014 is ‘Best of British’, and the committee is hoping to see lots of British flags waving on the day.
The ‘Great British Bake-Off’ cake competition is set to be judged by the WI.
There will be ‘carnival Crufts’, ‘Baa-ascot’ sheep racing, fairground rides, bouncy castles and time-honoured games such as a coconut shy, a bottle stall, the lucky dip and the famous egg-throwing contest.
All funds raised by this family-friendly event will be used to support local groups and projects.
Anyone wishing to have a stall at the Carnival can contact Dave Hopewell on 01437 781497.
