MILFORD Haven Round Table has announced plans which will revamp the town’s annual carnival.

The Round Table are celebrating 60 years since they were first formed and to mark the occasion, the carnival procession will be returning to Charles Street.

Following that the procession will finish up at its new home on Milford Waterfront.

Adrian Cook will take over as Chairman in April and he said: “For the last few years the Carnival has grown in size and is now such a huge day in the town.

We’ve been thinking about how we can help it to keep growing and the obvious thing that needs to happen is for the Carnival procession to return to Charles Street.

“There are so many great local businesses along the street that would really love to be a part of the day and we hope that we can bring the spirit of the Carnival to the town centre once again.

“We’ve also faced some challenges fitting everything that we would like on the Carnival field so we’re also delighted to announce that the procession will finish at its new home on Milford Waterfront where we can accommodate a great funfair, charity stalls, entertainment arena and loads of fun for all the family.”

Chairman Ellis Thorne commented: “2019 has been a great year and I am so proud of everything we have achieved as a volunteer group of Milford lads.

“The Carnival was huge, I was amazed by the size of the crowds on the streets and bringing X Factor stars Reggie & Bollie to the Carnival field was the highlight for me. Then we had the Beer Festival which was crazy. We’ve worked hard but it’s all so worth it.”

Milford Haven Carnival will be held on Saturday, July 4, with no set theme.

However, for the first year there will be a prize awarded for the entry that best tells the story of Milford Haven such as the Vikings, Quakers, Fishing, Oil & Gas and the Waterway.

Entry forms are available by contacting any Tabler or via the Milford Haven Round Table Facebook page.
