Wokingham’s Winter Carnival

I enjoyed yesterday’s Carnival. The streets were crowded as people came to see the procession of attractive floats, performers and special vehicles. After the walks or drive around the Carnival route, we assembled in the Marketplace for carols as the Mayor switched on the lights.

I would like to say a big “thank you” to the organisers and to all who participated in it. The Berkshire Maestros played well to accompany the singing. It got our Christmas season off to a great start.

    Good news that the Town wants, and still can run a Carnival, although a huge amount of thanks should also go to the many local voluntary and business organisations who invest in their time and help to organise such.

    Without such unpaid help and voluntary contributions, the Town and its local residents would not have anywhere near as many events to view and enjoy.
