Great Bentley Carnival

This year’s carnival is scheduled to take place on the Village Green on Saturday 24 June 2017.

This year’s theme is “When I Grow Up…”. So if you are young or old, think about what you might like to be when you grow up. You could want to be a nurse or fireman, footballer or zoo keeper, or be a bit older and just quite like the idea of going down to two days a week.

Let your imaginations run wild and get thinking about what you want/wanted to be when you grow up. We are holding a Family Fun Afternoon in early March (5th or 12th). There will be fun and games, cakes and refreshments. Look out for the final date announced at the start of February. During the Family Fun Afternoon, the 2017 King/Queen and Prince/Princesses will be selected. It’s a simple process and people are picked on why they want to be part of it and their enthusiasm. This is a great opportunity to represent our village at other Carnivals and to make lots of new friends. For details about how to apply and the criteria please email Anyone over the age of 7 is eligible! Two new people have just been elected to the carnival committee but we have a couple of roles left. We need someone to help with putting together the program and someone else to help with running the silent auction.
