Whitehaven Carnival

Due to ever increasing needs, limited resources, community projects and workstreams we have been unable to rebuild Whitehaven Carnival and are looking for interested parties to take over the project- bringing the life and soul of the carnival back for future generations. We are more than happy to provide volunteers for road closures, set up and clean up, provide the face painting and help on the day, but we are unable to piece together the event to the best of our abilities... Can we take this opportunity to thank ALL of our volunteers; our community provisions, support and training options can only be provided due to their amazing work in the community.
