Getting Ready For The 8 Day Week End?

Intercounty Saffron Walden branch regularly enjoy the delights of the 8 day week end, it is an event the whole town look forward to but what would it be if people did not take part?  Volunteers and participants are needed to make the event what it is so have you signed up yet?

The Saffron Walden Round table will of course be running their massive procession and the theme this year is the 'Carnival of Nations.' More than 100 floats, bands, classic cars all lead by the Carnival Queen will be flowing through town on the 5th of July. But the Carnival Queen is not yet chosen so if you think a member of your family would make a wonderful Carnival Queen to lead the procession make sure you have filled in your competition entry forms.

The closing date is Monday 23rd June at 5pm. The actual competition will be held live in the Carnival Marquee on Saffron Walden Common on Friday 4th July. The judging will follow the traditional process - you'll be interviewed on stage by our compere in front of a panel of judges and a live audience. The winner will be announced on the night and crowned Carnival Queen 2014.

The other thing not to be missed will be 'Dodgeball' on Saffron Walden Common on Sunday 6th July in a purpose built arena.  It's a non-contact sport for all levels and needs a team of 6 but you can enter a squad of 10 - fancy dress is encouraged and there will be prizes so if your family or business want to make it a day to remember get planning!
