Carnival Approaches
By Geoff Hodgkinson, Co-Editor

November 3, 2011: Are you ready for Carnival yet? With only one week to go things may appear silent around town but in reality the sounds of hammering and sawing are reaching a crescendo behind the scenes. We've heard threats about flying bread bins and naked bodies but to reveal any more details would invite retribution so our lips are sealed. The Tar Barrel and Torch teams have been busy and last weekend 50 torches were made (see right) and dipping was started. This year, for the first time, all torches have been double-wired on their sticks for extra safety. Barrels are being tarred as we write and residents are encouraged to heed the excellent words of Dave Hoar in the recent Parish Pump and Carnival Programme regarding parking and other issues. Enjoy! And above all stay safe!
