Pink day

Its the rinky dink panther, the pinky pink panther...
Wilson looks a bit peturbed in his new hat?!
When I became Chairman of Redbridge Carnival I promised to the committee present before me, that I would make Carnival and its representatives intrinsic, to as much of what is fun and important in Redbridge, as was possible.

It was hence a real delight and pleasure to be invited by the incumbent Mayor Cllr Chan to be invited to the Pink Day event held at the Town hall last Tuesday. Our Carnival Princesses and Mascot attended the vent with great aplomb and looked glorious in their regalia and shimmering pink dresses. The day had a serious tone in that it was organised to promote Women's Breast Cancer Awareness day and a collection was made for the Cancer Research Fund. Being a part of such an important day was a privilege for all involved with Carnival and I know that the girls were impeccable with their timing and with their attitude on the day.

These girls have committed themselves to charitable work with Redbridge Carnival throughout the year and have already distributed programmes at the Area 5 Festival, collected money for St Johns Ambulance and participated in the recent sponsored Walk held by Joe Browne and the Ilford Athletics Club and here again they have proved to be great ambassadors for the Borough. The Mayor has asked our court to attend various other events in the Year (so do look out for them!)and they will be present on the New Years Day Parade Float too!
