Carnival 2017:The Good Ol' Days
SATURDAY 10TH JUNE | Midday - 5pm
Melrose Avenue > Rickley Park
WBC ARE PROUD TO BE THE HOSTS OF, ARGUABLY,
THE BEST COMMUNITY EVENT OF ITS KIND IN MILTON KEYNES!
EVERY YEAR CARNIVAL KICKS OFF THE SUMMER IN MK!
With the rain threatening to wash out Carnival last year, we all held our breath and watched the weather forecasts but Carnival didn't disappoint...
...with the start of the parade came the sunshine!
West Bletchley Council donate proceeds from the Carnival to a chosen charity every year. We asked YOU to nominate your Charity to tell us how they serve the community of West Bletchley.
2016's worthy beneficiaries were:
The West Bletchley Well Being Counselling Service
St Andrews Winter Night Shelter
To register your interest as this year's nominated Charity (or registered community group/organisation), email our Events Officer in the first instance: Corrina.Milner@WestBletchleyCouncil.gov.uk. All you need to do is tell us how you benefit residents in West Bletchley to be in the running to be awarded profits from this year's event!
