  Carnival will be on Saturday, 13th July. As usual it will start with the procession through the village and continue on the field with the usual stalls, teas, bar, barbecue, sports and a Fun Dog Show. The floats will leave the Taurus car park at 2pm and the walkers will join them at Millbrook Green.   Prizes for the best floats are £200 (The Bledisloe Challenge Cup), £100 and £75 and all other entries will receive £30. There are also prizes for the walking entries.

  A new carnival committee will be planning and organising the 2019 Carnival. The committee has  David Adams, Colin and Stella Newman, Brian and Sandra Rickards, John Ridley, Sandra Sargent together with Mark Sargent from the Hall trustees.

 The next Carnival 2019 meeting will be in The George on Tuesday 9th July at 7:30


This year's Carnival will help to celebrate two village anniversaries. It is 100 years since the WI held their first meeting and 150 years ago that the school building was completed.

The WI will lead the procession with 'The WI through the Ages'. Several members will be walking, while others will hop aboard a farm trailer, kindly loaned by Hanley Farm, with a vintage tractor driven by Mike Luther to take them down the road. Their stall on the field will consist of jams, pickles and cakes.

For their float the children from the school will be in Victorian costume. In the Community Room there will be a display to mark the start of the school's 150th year.

On Carnival Day the procession will start from the Taurus car park at 2pm with the Tewkesbury Marching Band accompanied by the Harmony Twirlstars from Cinderford. Walkers in fancy dress should join in the procession at Millbrook Green. This year's judge will be Pam Bendall.

On the Playing Field there will be many attractions including a pig roast, grand draw, Punch and Judy, bouncy castle, bowling, classic vehicles, teas and a bar. A new attraction this year will be laser clay shooting. The Forest of Dean Brass Band will once again be entertaining the crowds with traditional music.

The Family Fun Dog Show will be going on all afternoon followed by children's races.  ULTRAVIOLET will be performing from 5 till 7pm. 

A limited number of trade pitches are available at every Carnival.

This year some food pitches will also be available.
