Fleet & District Carnival is local charity that has been a part of the community for over 60 years. Our committee is run by a team of volunteers, who dedicate their time to organise this much loved annual event, that brings families and friends together whilst having fun and raising money for charity.
I joined the Carnival committee only last year having wanted to get involved and support my town and this fantastic annual event. I was privileged to be able to run the dog show with my colleagues from Ashworth Vets and loved every minute of it. This year I have now taken on the Chairman role as well as running the dog show with the team at Ashworth Vets. Being a part of the committee, has been a great opportunity to meet some great people, working hard to continue on such a fun and well run event. I have loved being part of the dog show with my practice for the last 5 years so am looking forward to taking on the new challenges the role of Chairman brings and i hope i can do the role justice and bring Fleet a wonderful Carnival 2019.
With my background in finance I joined the Carnival Committee as Treasurer. Having lived in fleet most of my life, this was the perfect way for me to volunteer my time to a great local event. I get the chance work with a lovely team of people helping the community and I’m excited for a new challenge and fun filled Carnival in 2019.
I am the Carnival Secretary. Having lived in Fleet all of my life and I love the excitement of the Carnival. I have spent more than 29 years as Manager of a travel agency in Fleet High Street.
I have been the president of the Carnival for over 10 years and have lived in Fleet since the 1970’s and have an active role with the Fleet WRVS.

I joined the committee in 1989 and was the Carnival Treasurer for 25 years. I am now one of the assistant treasurers. Having lived in Fleet since Jan 1986 I love Fleet Carnival and especially banking loads of money for our charitable causes!
I am new to the committee this year but I have been attending the carnival since I was a child. I have grown up loving the atmosphere in Fleet around carnival time and couldn’t bear to see it stop, so naturally I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to help in any way I could! Making use of my long student summer I am responsible for running around collecting raffle prizes, delivering flyers and programmes and helping out with any general odds and ends. I am so excited to be a part of this amazing event!
Having grown up in the local area, I have enjoyed the carnival both as a child and an adult. It is always great fun with a brilliant atmosphere and an excellent turnout. It has always amazed me how much effort must go into the organisation so I have joined the committee to find out and help with the organisation. I am looking forward to utilising my skills and being able to contribute to what will be a fantastic 2019 carnival!
This is my first year on the carnival committee, having lived in fleet all my life I’ve participated and watched the carnival most years. With my passion for events and marketing I thought joining the committee will give me a great experience and I look forward to putting my skills forward
Want to be part of the Fleet Carnival… There are lots of ways to get involved!
