The sun (almost) shone on the Carnival on Saturday 4th, and a good day was had by all! Molesey Carnival is one of the largest free community events in the area and a great way to meet people from all over Molesey and beyond.
Many thanks to all local members and their family who donated, made or grew items for the stall and to those who loaned us tables, gazebo and signs (thanks to the Cobham, Oxshott Labour Party for balloons and boards). We had a good day, and met quite a lot of local members and a few prospective new members too. We also had some lively debates on the EU Referendum and were able to put the Labour Party “Remain in the EU” message over to those who wanted to talk.
The good news is also that we did make some money which has been added to branch funds for future campaigns or social events!
We are already reviewing what we could do better for next time, and will come back out to local members nearer to the next carnival for fund raising ideas, donations and volunteers to get involved.
