Hunstanton Carnival to be revived for 2022

THE once-popular carnival in Hunstanton is to be revived following a Town Events Meeting held recently by Hunstanton Town Council.

The date of Sunday, June 26th has been ear-marked for the carnival procession and a full programme of entertainment happening in the town.

The Mayor of Hunstanton Cllr Adrian Winnington reported "following the recent Town Events Meeting held in the Town Hall, I am pleased to announce that members of Hunstanton Round Table, Hunstanton Rotary, Hunstanton Lions & Hunstanton District Festival of Arts have all agreed to form a committee, under the umbrella of Hunstanton Town Council, to work together on future events in the town".

At the first meeting, members unanimously voted Mark Williamson, a very active member of the Round Table as Chair and decided that their first project would be to revive the Carnival to be held in June 2022, as part of the Queen's Platinum Jubilee celebrations.

Mark stated "I am confident that we can achieve a successful carnival. Anything which is going to promote interest and vitality in our town is to be welcomed, but it will mean a lot of hard work for a determined team of volunteers. I hope we get the support of businesses and organisations in the town as it would be of considerable economic benefit to all bringing in people from a wide area".

Hunstanton Town Events Committee would like to hear from individuals, businesses, youth or community groups who have any ideas or can help in any way, please contact either the town clerk Jan Roomes on 01485 532402, email clerk@hunstantontowncouncil.gov.uk or Mark Williamson 07568 138 331, mark@thewellbeingpeople.co.uk

The Mayor finished by saying he 'hoped the revival of the Carnival would raise community spirit and help local businesses.
