One more flat bed lorry needed for Weymouth Carnival

Weymouth Carnival 2014

11:16am 10th August 2018

Organisers of this year's Weymouth Carnival have told Wessex FM they still need a flat bed lorry.

Procession Manager Curtis Ottoway has made the appeal on behalf of the cast of this year's Summer Panto at Weymouth Pavilion.

He's also revealed they are still taking on volunteers to carry out a number of roles over the two days next week.

He said: "This year's carnival is so much bigger than in previous years so we are desperate for volunteers. It's a really great occasion, even if you just give up your time for the morning or afternoon. There's a really good atmosphere. We look after you and give out refreshments and it's all about joining the party we are creating."

Anyone interested is asked to fill in an application form here.

"We are also appealing for one more lorry to take the Pantomine Dame and the Pirates of the Pavilion so we are hoping someone will step forward and help us there," said Curtis.

 'Carnival Auction'

Weymouth Carnival and Events Club are supporting Dorset and Somerset Air Ambulance and the pair have teamed up for a special auction with lots.

"They are some amazing lots" said Curtis.

"You could actually win the opportunity to join the procession in an armoured vehicle! That's something we're very lucky to have this year".
