Stall holders wanted at this year’s Bridlington Lions Carnival Fun Day

Bridlington Lions Club is appealing for stall holders to step forward and take a pitch at this year’s Carnival Fun Day which will be held on the Limekiln Lane Cliff Top.

This year’s Lions Carnival Fun Day will be held on Sunday, August 1.

The event, much-loved by residents and visitors alike, is set to return after being called off last year.

To make the carnival a success, the Lions Club is asking for more charities and commercial stall holders to sign up for the event.

The carnival will take place on Sunday, August 1 between 10am and 4pm, which is also Yorkshire Day.

As usual the event, which will be subject to Government regulations, will have amusements, rides, entertainment and bar facilities and refreshments. There will also be a giant car boot sale.

The Lions said the past year had been a difficult one for fundraising, so as a goodwill gesture to the many local charities and branches of major ones, the organisation is offering as a one-off gesture a stall rental charge of just £15.

Bill Whittles, one of the carnival’s organisers, said: “The carnival brings in vital funds for the Lions Club, raising thousands for local causes, so losing last year’s event was a blow.

“The carnival in 2019 raised £6,000 net of expenses. However, we have received various grants during the lockdown so we still are OK for funds.

“We need to keep organising these events so we can give back to the public who are very generous with their support.

“The carnival is a way of doing that, bringing something back for the town.”

Any charities or commercial stall holders need to book their space at the carnival by filling in an application form.
