In 2015 we asked the people of Fleet & District to vote for their charity of choice for 2016 and the winner was Chloe & Sophies Special Ears Fund.
Carnival 2016 time in Fleet is here!
Fleet & District Carnival has been at the heart of Fleet community since 1956 and is a much loved tradition. It brings together the local community, by having some fun and raising money for local charities.
This years Carnival theme is Rio.
The ideas for floats are endless, you can choose to base your entry on the Olympics as a whole, or one of the 42 sports that will be featured or the Rio Carnival. The choice is yours!
Fleet Carnival has been at the heart of the local community for over 60 years.
Being part of the carnival committee is like being part of a huge family. We have such fun during the planning meetings with just enough seriousness to make sure we tick all the boxes. Over the weekend of Carnival we adopt pet names for each other and use them as as our radio call signs. Our children spend the weekend playing together and we all end up parenting each others children, whist having competitions to see who can sell the most raffle tickets. Being part of the committee is something you will never forget.
We have our Carnival debrief in a few weeks time and will be discussing the feedback we have received. Whilst the feedback has been amazing, we really do want to hear about the things that you think could have been better, or things that could be tweaked or added to the programme for 2017.
If you haven't given us your feedback already we really would appreciate you taking a few mins to complete the survey.
