Maldon: Volunteers needed to save carnival
Maldon's carnival organisers are urging people to safeguard the event’s future - or risk losing it altogether.
Committee members fear the carnival could be under threat unless residents devote their time to producing a successful showcase.
Members have dwindled recently and they are now looking for a new chairman, chaperone, procession manager, programme and sponsorship manager, event administrator as well as several volunteer roles on the day.
Committee member Rob Slight said: “We desperately need a chairman and procession manager, we can’t go on without them.
“We are lacking manpower - there could be no carnival.”
It is not the first time the carnival has been in doubt, with last year’s event under threat because of lack of funds and interest in joining the committee.
