Bingo Winner

By | Uncategorised

A fabulous afternoon at Mo & Tracy’s Carnival PRIZE Bingo hosted by The Tyneside on Monday 5th August.

Each of the eight traditional games had prizes of £5 for a line, £10 for two lines and £20 for a full house so there were plenty of opportunities to win.

Tension was high when it was announced that the big prize for the Full House Flyer was no longer just the £50 prize donated equally by The Tyneside and the Bayleaf guesthouse; it had risen to a staggering£215.00.  Everyone, of course, was delighted for lucky winner, Nicola Craske.

Additionally, the raffle raised an amazing £120.00 for Sheringham Carnival funds.  Thank you, we are extremely grateful.

Thanks to Mo & Tracey for comparing and The Tyneside for hosting.

Thanks to Cookie for being Quizmaster and to The Crown for hosting.

Carnival Queen 2019

By | Uncategorised

The Carnival Queen and Attendant Selection Evening was successfully held tonight and the Carnival Queen selected is Emma Taylor.

Emma is Mum to Caitlin and Thomas (who came along to support her). Emma is a Fitness Instructor at Splash Leisure Centre. She is also a VW Camper Van enthusiast who moved to Sheringham in 2007 and is very much willing to help out in the thriving community of a town she loves.

Carnival was seeking one Attendant and found that in Alisha May Redgrave. Alisha is 16. Still at school but has worked at Fat Ted’s in Sheringham for a year. She has loved carnival since a little child and her favourite float was the Carnival Queen – just watching them gave her a feeling of being happy and enjoying herself. She is a very enthusiastic person with a lot of personality.
Mollie Gallon, our current Queen, has been offered a position of carnival second chaperone which we are thrilled to report she has accepted.
