CARNIVAL 2020

Unfortunately this year's planned carnival has had to be cancelled. The Carnival group regrets having to take the decision but feels that it would be irresponsible given the restrictions that still apply nationally to go ahead with such a large event.

It is hoped that a smaller event may be able to be held around Christmas, but that too will depend on the situation with coronavirus at the time.

Planning has already started for Carnival 2021
