#clapforourcarers is now gaining momentum and becoming a regular Thursday event - lets all give a massive round of applause for the Key Workers who are currently keeping our country going... in particular those in the front line at the NHS.

Let's see how much noise we can make in appreciation this evening... β€οΈπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘

You have 4 months left to prepare your Carnival float! This year's theme is 'Once Upon a Time'...

Did you know that the term 'float' dates back to the Middle Ages and was named this way because the first displays took part on the River Thames as part of the Lord Mayor's Show!

🀞 My family and I love the carnival!

Once Upon a Time we could go out and Enjoy Ourselves !?

I'm so happy to see this amongst all the madness! Praying this still goes ahead 😁

Swanage Carnival 2020 is still going ahead as planned for now. A decision will be made closer to the time whether to continue or not, the safety of our locals, visitors and our committee is most important. We will look at the current situation at that time. It’s impossible to say now how things will be in July/August so follow swanage carnival page for updates. Stay safe all

It will not be over by that time and the Red Arrows will not be displaying as they cancelled there overseas training and have no PDA for this year

Swanage carnival, just wondering if you are still on as Wareham have cancelled theirs???

Surely this will be cancelled ?

Middle Ages !!! Did they have Carnival Queens then ??

You still going ahead
