CARNIVAL VOLUNTEER HONOURED AT LOCAL COMMUNITY AWARDS CEREMONY.

At the local community awards ceremony organised by Swanage Town Council our very own Dave Terrett received the lifetime achievement award for his 42 years of service with Swanage Carnival.

This was a fantastic award given to a volunteer who has been raising thousands and thousands of pounds for charities and local causes not only during Carnival week itself but also fundraising at various Carnival run events throughout the year for over forty years.

Always a popular figure Dave works tremendously hard behind the scenes and was surprised and embarrassed but thrilled to receive the award !

Congratulations to all the other community award winners as well.

The carnival team are proud that there longest serving member has been recognised with this award ,
It is very well deserved, congratulations and well done Dave.
