Keep Keeping Calm and Carry on …. Location Change – Ambergate Carnival 9th July
The week running up to carnival is proving a testing time. The alternative field which we had identified and a significant amount of work had gone into preparing can, unfortunately, not be used.
The last minute changes to plans due to the state of the Rec. meant there was not sufficient time to get our entertainment licenses and permissions changed. I understand there have also been objects raised about the new location. Both of these lead us to conclude we cannot use the replacement field.
This leaves the only option to revert back to the Rec.
Whilst the water logging in the centre is bad the committee are confident there is sufficient area remaining on the rec to still proceed. Some of the layouts will have to change but it was great to see everyone pull together and look at how we can still put on a great carnival and after party. We look forward to seeing you all there and making this a great event.
The locations pages have been updated here [Again]
We have unfortunately decided to cancel the Friday night event in order to concentrate on getting everything ready for the Saturday.
The weather is looking hopeful but I don’t want to tempt fate – fingers crossed everyone
