2021 CARNIVAL POSTPONED
It is with much regret the Dormansland Carnival Committee have to announce the 2021 carnival has now been cancelled. With the Covid pandemic still ongoing, and no firm end date in sight, like so many other local and national events it is nigh impossible to guarantee social distancing so the decision has been taken out of our hands.
However, 2021 WILL still definitely see the return of the Scarecrows where anything goes. They don’t need to be complicated and can be made using items readily found in any home (cardboard, newspaper, old clothes, wire, old hats, etc.). It is always such fun seeing them pop up all over the village in early June. A sign that summer is back, and it certainly brings joy and laughter to warm evening strolls.
Your continued support is much appreciated, and we will be back in touch in late summer when planning for the 2022 event will start.
Stay safe, stay well …. make a scarecrow!
