Maryport Carnival appeals for help
Last updated at 13:33, Friday, 04 July 2014
Volunteers are needed to man road barriers and help out as marshals at next weekend’s Maryport Carnival.
Roads around the town will be closed from 1.15pm next Saturday, July 12.
Gary Hampson, spokesman for the Solway Trust parade organisers, said: “We will reopen as soon as possible, but we want people to be especially aware that Curzon Street will be closed from Netherhall Corner to Station Street for as long as it takes the procession to cross over the road, walk around Mealpot Road – which will also be closed – and up Station Street back onto Curzon and up Senhouse Street.”
Mr Hampson said he was looking forward to a successful carnival and said he hoped that floats from neighbouring events would join in.
He said volunteers from the Solway Trust and Love Maryport team would be helping, but if anyone else would like to volunteer they could contact him via the Solway Trust website at www.solwaytrust.com
