The carnival must go on

Organisers of Bakewell Carnival have no intention of cancelling tomorrow’s event – despite severe weather warnings from forecasters all over the country.

The only change being made to this year’s carnival is that the procession will now be starting from Bakewell Showground rather than the recreation ground.

Denis Mooney, Chairman of the Bakewell Carnival Committee said: “The recreation ground is completely waterlogged so we have been forced to change the starting point.

“It’s upsetting, but we think we can still do the procession as normal and if anything, the change actually extends the route.”
