Sadly the terrible weather has claimed another victim with Acocks Green Carnival being cancelled on Saturday, due to the ground being waterlogged. This was both a huge disappointment to everyone who enjoys the Carnival, but also a huge blow to the many residents and community organisations who worked so hard to organise it. Several of these organisations depend on the Carnival as a significant annual fundraiser so the financial impact will be painful for them. Perhaps the Ward Advisory Board could look at making some one off grants of Community Chest, to those organisations which have been particularly badly hit?
