CARNIVAL SUCESSOn the 24th September Burnham held its 107th annual Carnival and this year was full of entertainment from 9.30 right through to the end of the procession.
The day started with the Queen Crowning of Jasmine Jefferies and princesses Connie and Olivia.
We then had the delights of the first Dog Show organised by The Dog Salon, with over 30 entries it definitely was a hit of the day. Followed by the 999 races which always gets the crowds going, unfortunately the Fire Crew were called out on an emergency and could not take part. Rayleigh Brass gave us an hour of fine music and then the children's fancy dress. Epic Dance gave a great performance. Blue falcons Gymnastics team returned filling the arena with high jumps and daring tricks.
The Carnival pre events were also a great success with the quiz night, Minute to win it which was very popular, baby show, a carnival of flowers, bingo and of course the darts and dominoes held in the New Welcome Sailor.The procession started a bit behind schedule but was well worth the wait. With Marching Bands, Majorettes, Queens courts from all over, the very impressive float by the RNLI-TITANIC which the crowd said “now that’s a float!”. Also the Circus float, Grease, Disney and the seaside inspired float. Rampage returning for the fourth year. We had the Addams Family, Willy Wonka and ompa loompas, Alice in
Wonderland plus lots more.
This year the Carnival Committee put a photograph of Keith Williams at the head of the Burnham Queens Court float to pay tribute to such an amazing man (and father).
Committees hard work
defiantly paid off, but they are always looking for more volunteers.
This year the Carnival raised a whopping £5,400 which will be given to local charities
