Braintree is celebrating its 52nd annual carnival in 2015 and we are all very excited about the day. The theme for the procession is 'Disney' and with over 25 entrants already confirmed we can look forward to the usual array of colourful floats and entrants brightening the streets of Braintree.

Attractions in the main arena include Blue Falcon Gymnastic Display, Bands from the Braintree College, Stagecoach Theatre Arts School and Braintree Rugby Club. Also, around the field will be the usual fun fair and selection of stalls and refreshments.

Our primary aims of the carnival are to provide entertainment for the town and to raise funds for our chosen project. This year we are raising money to support Spinal Muscular Atrophy Support UK. I urge you to read more about this worthy cause.

A big thank you to everyone taking part in the event. We could not do it without you all.

Full details are still being finalised. We hope to see Punch and Judy, Face Painting, Bouncy Castle, Soft Play Area, Baby Changing, Donkey Rides and much much more.

Edward Thomas Perkins

10th October 1928 - 1st January 2015

Tom joined the Carnival Committee in 1969 and was an active member until 2010 when ill health forced him to give up his many roles.

Over the years Tom helped with many activities including designing, building and repairing stalls, making signs, electrics, towing the queen, minute's secretary, assistant Treasurer as well as so much more. It is impossible to explain just how much Tom has helped with the carnival. He will be forever in our thoughts and everyone will miss him.
