Having had its first meeting of the year the Clacton Carnival Committee is already busy planning this year’s fun-packed Carnival Week which is 11th – 19th August.


They are now looking for a Clacton based Charity or organisation, which needs funds in the region of £2,000 - £3,000 for a project which will directly benefit people locally, to be the Main Charity for the Carnival Procession which is on Saturday 11th August, with the theme of THROUGH THE AGES. 


Last year a cheque for £2,500 was given to the Hospital Hopper Bus Service, as last year’s main charity. In the past few years the Carnival Committee have supported many other local groups with monies from the Procession:- Including Tendring District Scouts, CADOWS, Friends of the West Cliff Theatre, the RNLI and Clacton Maternity Unit, to name but a few.


All applications need to be in by Monday 19th February.
