Please consider how you can assist with the organisation of this popular Thornbury community event.
There are opportunities available throughout the months in advance and there is no requirement for Committee membership.
Some are practical task sets, some involve planning and preparation work and nothing needs doing all at once. It can be spread out, with a group of friends, or just as an individual.
What is needed is reliability and commitment to a service of benefit to the Carnival and of value to the Community.
