Organisers of this year’s Aldeburgh Carnival have warned that the event could be at risk if more volunteers aren’t found to help organise and lay out the route.
Keith Batt, press liaison officer for Aldeburgh Carnival, told the East Anglian Daily Times: ‘Everything is in place however we have been left unexpectedly short of the vital volunteers who help to layout the procession route and the spectator areas. It is no exaggeration to say that without enough help, the carnival would be at risk. Any help would be greatly appreciated.’
If you want to get involved and help make sure that this wonderful maritime celebration goes ahead in its full glory, contact Paul Payne on 07714 279561 or Neil Godbold on 07730 599415. Aldeburgh carnival is a truly unique community event and it would be a real shame if it were lost, so if you’re at a loose end, get in touch!
All volunteers get a carnival t-Shirt to wear and keep. They will be needed at the Moot Hall at 9.30am and 5.30pm and in the High Street at 9.30am, 5pm and 9.15pm.
