Witham Carnival returns for another fun-filled event

Braintree and Witham Times: Witham Carnival returns for another fun-filled event Witham Carnival returns for another fun-filled event

Witham will be filled with seaside memories at these year's carnival.

Taking place Saturday, July 12, the floats will start at Witham Football Club, Spa Road, with floats gathering by 11.30am and judging commencing at 12pm.

The theme this year is モseaside specialヤ and it is thought that about 40 floats will be taking part. The carnival queen and princesses, who are being crowned on Saturday at the Grove Shopping Centre, will also be in their float.

The procession will set off at 1.30pm and it will make its way along Highfields Road, turn in Spinks Lane and then up the High Street before finishing at Mayland Road.

There will be a fun fair in Maldon Park Road with a variety of stalls and entertainment including preformances by Essex Samba Band, Witham Big Sing, Rascals Theatre School, Witham Little Sing and Akula Ratnavali Tribal Belly Dancers.

There will also be a dog display team as well as food stalls and the fun fair.

People can enter the float competition up to the night before, and entrance forms are available on their website, withamcarnival.org.uk.

The organisers are always looking for more marshalls; if you are interested, contact Michael: chairman@withamcarnival.org.uk.

In the absence of any punctuation we can but only guess what Bhudeeka really means.

Is she declaring that her 'lovely self' will grace the event? ('Lovely I will be there.') ?

Or is she simply anticipating attending a lovely event ('Lovely - I will be there.')?

Another task for agent Pierre-Pierre I think. You've cut your teeth on the BWT Office with the 'Calendar Drop' PP. Now comes your Big Test.

Get yourself up to the Dragons Den in Humber Road and deliver a copy of ISBN-13: 9781592573936 would you? There's' a fine chap! You’ll no doubt end up in pride of place in the carnival as a reward for your bravery.

Assuming you survive of course!

I would go as I have a 2 year old grandson, who is the right age to enjoy this. (Un)fortuantely I have a prior commitment.
