At the recent Verwood Carnival AGM, the committee handed out cheques to the value of £1,200 to local deserving groups and good causes.
Chairman Adrian Read said, “We always give priority to those groups that participate and help make the carnival a success.”
The committee is determined to continue, despite the poor level of float entries. Adrian added, “All local schools and clubs should have a go at a float next year, there are cash prizes to be won for the best entries.”
The committee is also looking for new members with new ideas willing to help out with the carnival next year.
