Organisers of the Bridgwater Carnival have thanked everyone who registered their interest as a volunteer at a recent event.

The drive was held at the Carnival Centre on Sunday (June 12) and saw several people come forward to express an interest in helping out.

Dave Stokes, publicity director for Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival, said: "It was very worthwhile holding our 'drop in' session on Sunday, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank those groups and individuals who dropped by to see us and who registered their interest in helping us with this year's carnival on Saturday 5 November."

"Carnival only happens because of volunteers, and we can never have enough people helping us.

"Charities, community groups, youth groups, sports clubs, and other not-for-profit organisations, who like to raise money can still help with our collection.

"There are also several volunteering opportunities still available for Bridgwater Carnival 2022, including marshalling, programme sellers, carnival makers and more.

"Those interested should email, or drop into the Carnival Centre, High Street, Bridgwater."
