Dalton Carnival


THE organisers of Dalton Carnival are making a plea for volunteers in the run-up to the annual event.

Dancing troupes, bands and trade stalls will line the town’s streets, with the main parade beginning at 1pm.

Carnival Queen Sophie Clark, 13, will lead the celebrations on June 13. She will be joined by her ladies-in-waiting Melaina White and Sophie Warwick, both 12.

Millie Cruse and Leah Sanderson, both seven, will take part in the carnival as princesses to the queen.

The carnival route starts from Tudor Square and then on to Market Street, Skelgate, Mount Pleasant, Myrtle Terrace on to Chapel Street and into Nelson Street and then back on to Market Street and on to Station Road, then on to Beckside Road and finish at Dalton United Football Club.

There will be limited disabled parking at Dalton United Football Club from 10am, which will be re-opened to move vehicles from 6pm to avoid disruption to the carnival.

Awho would like to volunteer their services for the day, can contact committee chair Allyson Woodend, on 07922 990595, or by coming along to a committee meeting, held every Thursday in the Wellington pub, Market Street, from 7pm.

Trade stands are also still available, to book yours, contact Neil McDougall on 07917 728431 or email
