Maldon: Carnival in danger due to lack of help
The year 2013 could go down in history as the last ever year of the Maldon carnival.
This is what committee members of the carnival association believe after appealing for prospective volunteers to attend a meeting - and not one single person attended.
Last week the Standard reported that the carnival were looking for a new chairman, chaperone, procession manager, programme and sponsorship manager, and an events administator, as well as several other volunteers on the day, after members have dwindled recently.
A full committee should reach nine or ten members but it does not currently have even half that amount.
See this week's MBS for the full story.
