It’s been since a long time since we last posted, but we’ve been busy beavering away in the background. We’ve had a busy summer getting involved with the community and sharing our vision to bring a carnival to Sheffield.
So what have we been up to? Well, in July we had great fun running limbo competitions at the Family Cook Out event at the Power League Stadium and at the Family Fun Day at the Caribbean Sports Club. There was a good turnout and the children had great fun doing the limbo.
We also had a fundraising Zumbathon, testing our dance moves to the maximum. Everyone who came had a great time, thanks to our excellent instructor Kellyanne Watts-Sharman.
In August we got crafty making carnival masks at Sharrow Festival, this proved very popular with the children (and the older ones too). It was a great way to introduce people to the idea of carnival arts and let their creativity run wild.
So, what’s next? Now we need to get on with planning our first carnival.
We are delighted to announce that a venue for the carnival is booked and details will be confirmed later.
Eeeeekkk, it’s exciting, but there’s still lots of work to do, and funds to raise so if you’d like to help with the planning, organising or fundraising please get in touch.
We’ll keep you posted…
