Pershore Carnival Committee will be holding its annual presentation evening and annual meeting on Monday, September 10, beginning at 7pm at Pershore & District Sports Club.

Certificates will be awarded to all procession entrants, carnival royalty and the programme design winners.

Presentation of the procession collection will be made to Pershore Sea Cadets, plus discretionary donations from the committee to Pershore Cemetery Memorial Stained Glass Window Fund, Worcestershire Parent and Carers’ Community and Izzie Bird.

The annual meeting will follow the presentations and will include the election of officers and invitation to join the committee.

Colin Shepherd, Pershore Carnival Chairman said: “Pershore Carnival is organised each year by a small group of volunteers who are responsible for all the planning, organising, and fundraising.

"The planning and fundraising for 2019 Carnival will start this month.

"We had a fantastic 50th anniversary carnival, however in order to continue to make Pershore Carnival bigger and better year on year, we need more people to join the committee.

"We would therefore be pleased to see anyone interested in doing so at our annual meeting.”
