Lowestoft will have a carnival parade this year after all – following a unanimous decision taken after the Annual General Meeting last night.
The meeting at Lowestoft Hospital was attended by twenty people including the Mayor Tod Sullivan and John Stannard, a trustee of the Gwen Baker Trust.
They heard the Friends of Lowestoft Hospital Chairman, Mrs Pat Rayner, tell the meeting of the financial support offered by the Gwen Baker Trust and of the committee’s call for the support of the town’s people to take part in and help to organise the parade.
Tod Sullivan then responded by offering his help and said that he had had positive feedback about the future of the parade from councillors, the council’s partners, town centre traders and young adult groups. He offered to get involved with the organising committee and said that he believed that enthusiasm was definitely there in Lowestoft for a carnival parade.
After the positive vote to go ahead, Mr Sullivan said "we need the townsfolk to start thinking now about taking part in the parade and to let us know that they will be joining in. The committee is provisionally thinking the Carnival procession will take place on Sunday 23rd September and I believe that together we can take this forward and make it happen!"
