Carnival looks to boost numbers

THE Todmorden Carnival Committee is appealing for new members in order to keep the event going.

The carnival attracts thousands of people to Centre Vale Park each year, but the committee is low on numbers.

Chairman Philip Clarke said: “Without new members, it’s getting very close to finishing. We need some new blood. Everybody is welcome.”

Anybody interested is invited to a meeting in the community room at Todmorden Fire Station on Tuesday, October 9, at 8.15pm.
