Erewash Borough Councillors for the Wilsthorpe Ward Cllr Kewal Singh Athwal, Cllr Chris Corbett and Cllr Michael Powell have jointly agreed to assist the Long Eaton Carnival Association in helping to part fund this year’s Carnival which takes place on 20th June 2020 at West Park. The annual Carnival has been enjoyed by local residents for many years and it is one of the major events of the year. Councillors Athwal, Corbett and Powell have jointly contributed £750 from the EBC Members Community Grant Scheme to assist the Carnival Committee to ensure that this major event takes place again this year.
The Long Eaton Carnival has been running since the early 1930’s and is an annual tradition that is enjoyed by local people of all ages.
Councillor Kewal Singh Athwal said:
"Cllr Chris Corbett, Cllr Michael Powell and myself are pleased that we have been able to work together to assist with a £750 grant for this year’s Carnival which we are sure will be enjoyed by the vast majority of our residents".
