Hello is shaftesbury haveing a carnival this year thanks

Shaftesbury Carnival Club held its AGM on Zoom last night. It was their first annual general meeting since the death of former chairman Ray Humphries MBE in October.

Members spoke fondly of Ray’s immense contribution to Carnival and observed a one-minute silence in his memory. Derek Beer described Ray as ‘Mr Shaftesbury’. “He always put everybody first. Ray devoted a really large part of his far-too-short life to carnival,” said Derek.

“We have a duty to him and his family to carry on the good work and the traditions that he laid for us,” Cllr Beer added.
Carnival Club chairman Rich Mullins announced the renaming of the annual car show, in honour of its co-creator. The Ray Humphries Classic Car and Bike show will be held at Barton Hill on Sunday 25th July.

Very sad news today with the passing of Derek Harvey Watts.
A very well respected figure within carnival circles for many years. Derek has judged at our carnival for many years and also he donated a trophy which we still present on a annual basis.
Condolences to his family from all of us ♥️RIP Derek Harvery Watts

The Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show, Shaftesbury Fringe and a Gold Hill Fair-style festival have been confirmed.

Update from Rich

Good Evening, Just a quick update to our followers, with the news of the road map and the reduction in restrictions things are looking up, the Fringe, Gillingham and Shaftesbury Show and Gold Hill Fair all going ahead. We haven't made any decision on our Carnival or the events leading up to it.
We are monitoring the ever changing situation with Covid-19 and using this information when planning. Rest assured we haven't forgotten about the Carnival.
Take Care and Stay Safe
