Carnival band appeal hope

THE hunt is on for a new act to appear at the Ambergate Carnival after one of the original line-up pulled out because of illness.

The carnival takes place on Saturday, July 9, at the Recreation Ground, Derby Road, Ambergate.

Chairman of the carnival committee, Lisa Leach, said she would like to hear from local bands willing to perform, or play in the carnival procession. If you can help, contact Lisa on 01773 856719. See page 9.
