Wool Carnival:  Just a quick update on the carnival, we are still receiving donations so we haven't got a final total yet or how much we are donating to charities. We would like to thank everyone who has supported us with various functions throughout the year and so far we have raised in excess of £2000,00. Takings were down on this years carnival due to the poor weather to start with. We had a good turnout of floats and walkers, the best we have ever had, so thank you to you all for making a great effort. The live band in the evening was well attended too. Thank you all once again. We will keep you updated with the funds. Check out our website, www.woolcarnival.com.
