Residents of Stowmarket have been collecting money in buckets outside supermarkets. Money is being collected in a variety of ways and local people are very much in the mood for helping. The Save Stowmarket Carnival group has been trying to raise £500 to pay for road signs, this may be achieved but the group are still calling for volunteers, and anyone who may have a suitable vehicle or a lorry that could be borrowed.
"...we need groups, individuals, and different cars/vehicles to make this happen. We also require anyone who may have a lorry to offer, please contact me for info, and copy and paste and share to who ever you can. Lets make 2012 an Olympic Procession year..." – Sarah Lay from the Save Stow Carnival Facebook Page
The theme of this year's Carnival precession theme is 'the coming of the Olympics". The show kicks off at 12:30pm
