Potters Bar carnival hailed a success
THE organisers of the 2010 Potters Bar Carnival this week confirmed that the event raised more than �6,000 for charity.
Speaking to the Potters Bar Edition, carnival committee member Peter Weaver described this year’s edition, which took place on June 13, as “another success,” despite a drop in gate numbers.
Following the traditional procession through the town, around 5,000 people took advantage of the activities on offer at Elm Court Youth and Community Centre, in Mutton Lane, raising some �6,500 in the process.
Most of this money will be given to the Morven headquarters of the Potters Bar District rainbows, brownies and guides.
Reflecting on the day, Mr Weaver said: “Talking to the public, the general feeling was that the carnival reached its usual high standards and everybody enjoyed themselves.”
