Sheringham Carnival

Again, we had wonderful weather, with the exception of a bit of drizzle! Andy Wicks from The Junction in Cromer, and Freya Pedley and Becca Bentley from Under18 North/East set up an information stall on Carnival Day in Sheringham.

Although there weren't so many stalls there were still lots of people taking in the atmosphere! There was music and games and even clowns! We met many people, gave out lots of information to passersby and had some fun with the beer goggles. We also grossed some people out by showing our jar of tar which is equivalent to the amount of tar that a person has in their lungs by smoking 10 cigarettes a day for a year!

Here is a quote from Rosalie Weetman, our CEO:

"I just wanted to say congratulations on organising these events and for doing such a great job on the day(s). It was great to have both adult and young people's services represented together, so any member of the public could be approached, and we could answer questions about all the services we offer.''

Thanks Rosalie!

Finally, I'd like to thank Paula Popham and the rest of the Sheringham Carnival Committee for having us, it was a very productive day and we enjoyed ourselves!
