“This is such a difficult role because all the floats were excellent. Others to be thanked included Charlotte a volunteer at the community centre for organising the Prince and Princess of the carnival and the horse drawn carriage, all those who took part including those who brought along their scooters and classic cars.
“There were many others deserving of our thanks, without all of them there would not be a carnival.”
