Meet the Carnival Committee

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 am really looking forward to being able to bring an amazing carnival back to Fleet and the surrounding area for 2022! Carnival is one of those events that brings the community together, no matter what your age. It is always great fun with a brilliant atmosphere and an excellent turnout. There is so much effort that goes into organising it and I am very lucky to have such a strong and committed team who all pull together to create such a fantastic day.

Kerry Lambert Vice-Chairman
I joined the Carnival committee in 2018 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. 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 five years and really enjoyed the challenges of Chairman in 2019. Looking forward to bring carnival back in 2022.

Having grown up in and around Fleet, I have always loved the atmosphere in town around carnival time and so I joined the committee in 2018. Working around university deadlines and part time work you’ll most likely see me running around town doing various odd jobs behind the scenes to help keep carnival running.

I moved to the Fleet area in 2015 and have been looking ways to get move involved in supporting the local community ever since. When I contacted the Carnival Committee and was told they were recruiting new volunteers to the team, I knew this was the opportunity I’d been looking for. I’ve organised and run conferences and events all over the world so I’m hoping to use my skills and experience to help make the 2022 Carnival bigger & better than ever!
