Villagers have announced the date for the 31st Ambergate Carnival – and this year’s show will see a week of events in the run-up to the big day.
The actual carnival will be held on Saturday, July 13, they have announced this week.
Now organisers are calling for volunteers to spare a couple of evenings a month helping to book bands and food vendors, and help with the general organising of the event, which will also feature a Family Sports Day on Sunday, July 7.
Committee chairman Jack Evans said: “This year’s theme is music so start planning your costumes and floats now!
“We are still looking for acts and bands for the afternoon so if you’re interested get in touch with us via our website.”
If you can help organise the events, then call Jack on 01773 853581, or join the committee at their next meeting which will be held on March 18, at 8pm, in the Hurt Arms, on the A6, at Ambergate.
The committee can be contacted on Twitter @ambergate, Facebook and at www.ambergatecarnival.org.uk.
