PERSHORE Carnival organising committee will be holding its annual general meeting later this month to celebrate those who made the last event a great success.

During the evening from 7pm on Monday, July 21, at Pershore Sports Club, Defford Road, certificates will be presented to those who took part in the procession.

Cheques will be handed over to Midlands Air Ambulance and Acorns Children's Hospice for £885.84 to each charity.

The committee are also looking forward to next year's event and need people to lend a hand or offer any suggestions on ways to improve the annual event.
