In light of current Government advice, Shirley Carnival, due to take place on July 11th, has been cancelled. We know that this will be disappointing news for lots of people, but our responsibility is to try and keep people safe and well as well as prevent any additional strain on our emergency services.

Carnival sponsors for 2019 were The Window Centre, ASDA and Midhire Vehicle Rentals

The very young will not be forgotten as they can enjoy the fairground rides and Punch & Judy who hopefully will be performing to lots of "Behind You" and "Oh yes he is - Oh no he isn't"  

Now in its fourth year, prizegiving will take place for the School's Gardening competition which is being run in conjunction with Notcutts Garden Centre. Jackie Barker from Notcutts will be presenting 100 vouchers to the two winning schools which in 2019 were Woodlands Infants School in the Infants section and Haslucks Green School in the Year 4 + section. More information and photos for this can be seen on the Youth page of our website.

Last year the event raised 4,311 and we should like to place on record our thanks to our main sponsors: The Window Centre, 102 Marshall Lake Road, Shirley, Midhire Van Rental, Drayton Road, Shirley and ASDA superstores, Parkgate, Shirley who covered most of the expenses incurred in putting this event on.
