This is a personal message from Trevor – Chairman of the Dawlish Celebrates Carnival Committee:
“I would like to thank everyone in the town for the way they have thrown themselves into Carnival week and made it fantastic! The Committee is a small group of volunteers who have worked exceptionally hard to make the week happen.

I’d like to thank the Town Council for their unprecedented support, Teignmouth and Dawlish CIC and the many businesses who have sponsored events as we really could not have been done it without them. Special thanks also to the Dawlish Air Show committee for their support and help in making it possible for the Red Arrows to perform yesterday. I think you all will agree it was a really stunning Red Arrows performance.

It has been a fantastic week with fantastic support and a fantastic community spirit. Thank you Dawlish!! We look forward to seeing you all again next year.”
