Day Opportunities at

Nuneaton Carnival

The Nuneaton Carnival resumed for the first time since 2019, the first in four years due to Covid 19. People in Action Day Opportunities group took the idea of the “Party Time” and created a float based on the classic Disney Alice in Wonderland’s mad hatters’ tea party. The group worked tirelessly making costumes, props and sets every Friday until the very last Friday before the carnival day. The group built big sculptural artwork, painted characters, stitched tablecloths and organised all the technical aspects. Our own Bedworth Community Gardens assisted the project by displaying their home-grown flowers and trees on the float.

The group’s efforts continued right up until the start of the carnival, with preparations to make the float look pristine, and some last-minute touches were made, under the watchful eye of our Activities Coordinator Martin Bliss and faces were immaculately painted by our staff member Kirie.

The round of judging took place, and everyone involved with People in Action’s float waited with anticipation for the end result. With the atmosphere building, the judges made their last swoop before they headed in our direction before awarding us 1st place. This sparked celebrations all round with customers and staff all cheering with excitement and glee.

The procession commenced at 1pm, and the day finished with the efforts of all involved being soaked in. It was a fantastic day for all involved, and People in Action -the hard work over the last few months being fully rewarded.

A big thank you to everyone involved – from the Customers, staff teams, Volunteers, Family members, Martin Bliss, Tina and Maria Timson. Plans and preparations are already underway for next years Carnival!
