HERE’S some great news!

Eastbourne Carnival 2021 will take place in September.

Stephen Lloyd has just posted: “We were hoping this year’s carnival would be on its usual date of the last Saturday in May (29/5) but we’ve had to postpone it to September because of the ongoing pandemic concerns.

Though the vaccine does seem to be offering a way out for all of us, its negative impact has still a way to go and as we’re going to be in lockdown for another couple of months it just wasn’t feasible.

A disappointment after we had to cancel last year’s carnival.

However, I’ve managed to get an alternative date for 2021 from the council. Roll of drums… It will be on Saturday the 18th September @ 2pm.”

Great news!
