The town carnival has been in decline for the last few years and was in danger of collapsing altogether until a new committee was formed. "We are turning around the carnival and now face the next step of moving forward. We need to find a sponsor to ensure we can carry on the work we have started. In return the sponsor will have their name on all our banners and advertising leafets, etc.. It is the committee's aim to make this carnival the best in Derbyshire. We would to like to have a carnival centre where we will have classes to help people make costumes and floats, etc. and also to teach steel drumming, dance and circus workshops. To enable us to put on real show-stopper of a carnival, we will need to hire people to help us fulfill our ambitions. But this comes at a cost, which we will need a sponsor to help cover. We will also do our own fundraising events, which we already do. Further details are available - please don't hesitate to contact me". Contact: Chris Booth, Chairman.
