Thank you to Swanage Carnival who kindly donated £1,000 to the South Western Ambulance Charity at a special presentation evening on the 11th October. The Carnival distributed a staggering £28,800 across 26 organisations.

The donation will be ring-fenced for use by the Swanage Community First Responders to help them go the extra mile for the communities they serve.

Thank you so much to everyone who supported the Swanage Carnival and our volunteer heroes this year!

Swanage goes green. Celebrate nature theme

Swanage goes Green is a great idea

Swanage goes Calafornian. Emphasis on health, fitness, good multi cultural cuisine.

Or swanage goes vintage.40s,50s and 60s.

Considering it will be 60 years since 1960. Theme should be sixties 🙌 What a great era that unfortunately I missed as I wasn’t even born then 🤣

Swanage goes nursery rhymes

Or Swanage goes to Infinity and beyond.

How about Waste Not Want Not? That aligns with earlier 'go green' ideas and is a message that David Attenborough has put out. He might even be tempted to come and start the parade.

Swanage goes green ... keeping up with the global environmental concerns and trying to encourage as much recycling and use of environmentally friendly materials within floats, etc, as possible.

Swanage goes movies.

Yep Swanage goes green !!

Disney, goes green or goes 60s for the 60 yrs xx

Best of British theme

Thank you so much for supporting Forest Holme Hospice again - it is hugely appreciated by everyone and helps ensure that we can continue to be there for patients and their family and friends during the most difficult time of their lives.❤️

We loved it again this year, even took our ice cream van with us, what a lovely reception we received from all in Swanage.

And proud to receive this 🙂
