VILLAGERS are being urged to really get behind their carnival this summer – and make it an extra special family day for the whole community.
Trimley Carnival returns this year with a new organising committee determined to make up for the twin villages missing out in 2012.
Last year’s had to be cancelled because the dreadful wet weather left the events field waterlogged.
Chairman Sharon Iannuzzi said preparations for this summer’s event – set to take place on Saturday, July 13 – were going really well and the theme would be Cartoons and Comic Books.
The procession starts from Faulkeners Way at 1pm, travelling along the High Road to the Trimley Sports and Social Club, where the fun will include a disco, stalls, demonstrations, food, and fairground rides.
Craig Crew at KeaKreative.co.uk had designed a new logo for the event and everyone was working hard to get the public behind the carnival and joining in. On Saturday, March 23 a carnival open day will be held at Trimley Sports and Social Club from 11am to 3pm to tell people more.
Mrs Iannuzzi said: “It’s a chance for people to pop in and meet the new members of the committee, find out how to join in the procession, sign up to sponsor an advertising shield, and have a cup of tea and a cake after browsing the craft stalls.

“There will also be a raffle and a chocolate tombola for a chance to win a tasty treat!
“Throughout the day we will be holding interviews to find this year’s carnival queen, princess and prince.”
Applications are being invited for the royal court. Youngsters who would like to be princess or prince should be aged four to 11 years old, while the queen will be aged 16 to 18.
The prince and princess must attend either a Trimley primary school, and the queen must live in one of the Trimley villages.
Application forms are available by emailing email@example.com, or sending a message through the Facebook page Trimley Carnival.
? Anyone with chocolates left over from Christmas who would like to donate them to the chocolate tombola should take them to West End Dry Cleaners, Undercliff Road, Felixstowe, or make contact via email or Facebook to arrange collection.
