Former royals sought for carnival anniversary

ORGANISERS of Portishead carnival are trying to track down all the kings, queens and princesses from the event over the past 10 years.

This year is the tenth year the carnival has been organised by Wendy Watkins and BBC weather presenter Jemma Cooper. The Red Arrows will grace the skies of Portishead on June 15 to mark the anniversary and every effort is being made to ensure the carnival procession on June 16 is extra special.

All carnival kings, queens, princesses and flower princesses crowned since 2003 are invited to join a special float in the parade to represent the past decade.

All former royals interested in taking part should email or call 07855 944764.

Volunteers are also needed to help organise a float or open top bus for the royals. Please use the contact details above to pledge support.
