2017 POOLE CARNIVAL CANCELLED

The Executive Committee have just had an urgent meeting to discuss our current financial situation have decided to cancel this year's carnival event on 6 August.

It was felt that with no funds available hosting this event would irresponsibly increase our debts further with no sign of how to pay them off.

We hope to do a great deal of fundraising over the next year so we can pay off the existing bills and raise sufficient funds to come back with an event next year.

I hope people can understand our situation and I apologise for any inconvenience caused by this decision but we feel under these circumstances that this is the correct action to take at this time.

On behalf of Poole Carnival - Trevor Hunter

The Poole Carnival Flower Show 2014

Thank you very much to all of you who exhibited your beautiful cut flowers, pot plants, flower arrangements, cookery and handicraft entries. We must also not forget the children's entries with exhibitors ranging in age from 2 years to 14 years. Many congratulations to all of you who won prizes, especially to those who were entering for the first time in any show.

We look forward to seeing you all again at next year's event. Watch this space for details of the date of the 2015 show and how you can obtain a show schedule nearer the time.
