Onwards for Combe Martin Carnival
New committee take up their roles and begin planning for the next one in August.
COMBE Martin Carnival will definitely go ahead following the first meeting of a new committee.
The six committee members are all new to the role but were willing to stand up and be counted at a recent last ditch meeting called to save the popular week long August event after the previous organisers stood down.
The new committee chairman is Kevin Lamb, joined by secretary Philippa Shone, treasurer Sarah Croxford and additional members Ruth Chugg, Tash Kenny and Hugh Monro.
Publicity officer Hugh Monro said some of the previous committee members had offered to help out in the background if required.
Kevin said they were all new to the roles, but hoped to drum up more interest from the village for the carnival and to get more people if they could.
E said they would look at ways of seeing if they could improve on the carnival and to increase the number of floats taking part, as well as the funds raised for charity.
