ON behalf of the Harbourside Carnival Club, I would like to thank to residents of Charmouth, Symondsbury, Salway Ash, Loders, Bradpole, Litton Cheney, Long Bredy, Broadwindsor, Walditch, Bothenhampton, West Bay, Beaminster and Bridport for their generosity while we were out collecting with our Christmas float.

As our club enters its third year we seem to be going from strength to strength and we are now recognised by local people and many of the big carnival clubs in the south west and are not just a name to them. All the money raised will be going towards the building and running of this year’s entry which will debut at Bridport Carnival on August 15.

Our club takes part in about a dozen carnivals each year across West Dorset, East Devon and South Somerset and by doing so raises money for the various committees charities.

Once again thank you to all who donated and we look forward to seeing you at a carnival or next Christmas.

If you would be interested in joining us come along to our AGM on January 12 at Groves Café and join us for some fun and laughter

KIRSTY FOX chairman
