the resignation of the Carnival secretary, Chris Neale, at the
organisation’s AGM (reported in October’s Smoke Signal) and the
absence of anyone to take on the carnival in 2010, an EGM was
arranged to decide the future of the event. At the meeting the
situation was found to be unchanged and the Carnival Committee was
the guidelines of the Carnival Committee’s constitution, the
groups’ money can be held in trust in a bank account for up
to 5 years.
This arrangement has been set in place in case a new group decides
to re-start the carnival.
established new Carnival Committee should contact either Gerry
Dickinson or Pat Scholefield who are acting as trustees for the
monies remaining in the bank account. The old committee files are
available for reference at Crofton library
you to all the members of the community who contributed to the
success of the carnival over the last 10 years, especially past
committee members. It’s sad that the carnival will not
be continuing but many members of the village will remember that
there were other carnivals before this last series and no doubt
someone will have the drive and energy to start them again.
