Whilst all the Carnival activities due to take place on West Park ( Show, stalls, Funfair ) have been cancelled, the Parade itself is still on, but with revised Start/ Finish on Thoresby Road. We have a Walking Group entry, and things are well progressed with leaflets, bunting, flags, sweets for distribution, music ( Thanks, Jimmy!) all more or less sorted. The one thing I am uncertain about is numbers taking part. Please do come and join in if you can spare a few hours on Saturday, preferably in Zombie get up or wearing some kit which will identify you as being a LERCer. Children/ partners also welcome. The parade is due to set off at 11am, and be back by 1pm latest, but we need to be there by 10.15 ish. On the basis Thoresby Road will be somewhat chaotic, the masterplan is for us to gather at the Rugby Club from about 9.50am where all our stuff will be taken, then walk together over the field to Thoresby Road at 10.10 ish. Any one who cannot make it til after 10.15 can come and find us before 11am on Thoresby Road.
This should be a fun time and great opportunity to promote ourselves in the Community of which we are part.
