Hello and welcome to Sturminster Newton Carnival 2013.
The front and back pages of this year’s program were drawn by pupils of Yewstock School ( this is a special needs school). The front cover is by a 15 year old individual , and the back by a group of 6 children aged 7 to 11.
Sadly this year we have lost one of our former committee members, Mrs Phyllis Goddard. Phyllis was actively involved for many years and even at 91 was eager to help in many ways. A cup has been given in her memory, which will be the ‘Chairmans Choice’ for the children’s afternoon fancy dress.
You will also notice that the evening procession will start at 7.45pm - this will hopefully let you see the illuminated floats at their best.
I would like to thank the committee for electing me as chairman and for their support and hard work over the year, and on a more personal note, to congratulate Joe Rose (my husband) on his ‘promotion’ to Life President. If you would like to join our committee, or help in any way then please do get in touch with any committee member.
Lastly I would like to thank you all for supporting our efforts this year - have a great carnival.
