Barnstaple Carnival 2021 Cancelled
An announcement from Mayor Alan Rennles – “It is with great sadness that despite much discussion over the last few months between myself and the Chair of the Carnival John White and trying to find a working solution that due to Covid19 the difficult decision has been made by the Carnival Committee not to go ahead this year.
“Barnstaple Town Council realise how hard everyone has worked to try and make it happen but for safety reasons and to avoid any risk of an increase in Covid cases in the area this year whilst the vaccination programme is still being rolled out it seems like the best solution.
“Understandably a lot of people will be disappointed to hear this, as are we but the safety and wellbeing of our community must be paramount. Here’s to a safer and more exciting 2022 for Barnstaple.”
