Witham: Carnival in danger of folding
9:00am Wednesday 17th October 2012 in News
Witham Carnival is in danger of folding unless volunteers come forward to save it.
The tradition dates back to 1929 and became an annual event in 1951, when the Royal Air Force Association took it on until 1976, when the Witham Carnival Association was formed.
But age and work commitments have forced several members to step down, leaving next year's festivities hanging in the balance.
See today's Witham and Braintree Times for full story.
