Whitnash prepares for annual summer fun day

Leamington Editorial 23rd Jun, 2017   0

CARNIVAL organisers say residents would be ‘off their trolley’ to miss the rainbow-themed Whitnash Fun Run and carnival.

On Saturday (July 2) runners will be lacing up their trainers to take on a 5km race in memory of Cavin Woodward, who originally set up the community fundraising event in 2003.

It will be followed by a ‘trolley carnival’ – a unique take on traditional carnival floats, where participants instead decorate and push trolleys.

This year’s theme is rainbows, to mark the 30th anniversary of the youngest division of the Girl Guiding Group.

Runners and revellers will collect money for charity along the way, and festivities continue in Acre Close field, where the route ends.

There will be stalls and games along with live music from Spa Strummers, folk fusion band Firedaze and community brass band Royal Spa Brass.

The race starts at 12pm from The Lawns on Gleave Road, with the carnival following at 12.15pm.
