Colchester Carnival Organizers are looking for volunteers.

Following on from the success of previous years, Colchester Carnival returns to the town centre and Castle Park on 19 July 2014, organised by Colchester Round Table and Colchester Ladies Circle.

This year’s procession will have the theme ‘The Magic of the Movies’.  Organizers want everyone to have a chance to really get involved. That’s what they are aiming to achieve, a real community-centred event. Businesses can enter for a nominal fee on the condition they get into the “carnival spirit”.

You can add your interest in helping out here: http://vols.pt/q8s4ir or contact Brett at colchestercarnival@givelocalcolchester.co.uk

Essex In Pictures

The following are photos taken from around the County of Essex by myself. We are lucky to live in a beautiful County which has the 2nd largest Coastline in the UK and miles and miles of Countryside.

Anyone is welcome to use these photos but I would ask you to please credit or link back to the Mumsnet Essex blog. This post will be updated regularly.
