The Summit Triples carnival is fast approaching. More nominations are needed for the event. It is disappointing that some clubs in the district expect their carnivals to be supported and do not return the favour to clubs who support them.
A working bee will be held this Friday at 9am. There are several things that need to be done before the carnival.
