THIS years Carnival was
renamed the Veterans Day Charity Carnival. This colourful
display started with a procession of floats down the traditional
route for the carnival, down Lord Street and terminated in Princes
Park. On the field, military vehicles, an assault course, live
music and games where on offer. As the event has been taken over,
the winners of the 2010 carnival cups got to keep them.
It is now hoped that the event will continue to build on its success
and the parades long history. New cups are now being made and
will be presented at next years event on 25 June 2011.
"This was the fist year we have done the event and we are so please
we all the help we received. It was a great day and I think everyone
enjoyed themselves. I would like to thank all the groups and
individuals who have helped us put this event on." said
Steve Hawkshaw from the Veterans Fund.
The winners of the carnival cups were:-
► Best Military - won by Manchester University RAF Squadron and was
presented by Councillor Byron.
