THE organisers of the successful Poole Carnival, which took place in Parkstone this year, are holding an AGM.

The event takes place on Monday, September 1, 6pm, at the Seaview Hotel in Ashley Road.

A date has already been set for the 2015 carnival after the event – the first in the town for 12 years – proved a big success. Richard Wilson, chairman of Ashley Road Traders Association, which got the event off the ground, said: “It was a fantastic carnival.”

Next year’s carnival will take place on a bank holiday Monday, May 25.

The AGM will receive the accounts from this year and elect a committee for 2015.

Mr Wilson said organisers were in need of more volunteers to share the workload of organising the event.

There is also a Carnival Queen Night in the diary for October 18, where next year’s carnival queen and attendants will be chosen.
