Durham carnival this weekend – Displays from Deerness Gymnastics Club

A CARNIVAL is being planned for Sunday.

The Framwellgate Moor and Newton Hall carnival is being held for the second consecutive year, having been revived in 2011 following a break of more than 30 years.

The parade will leave Sainsbury’s, at the Arnison Centre, in Pity Me, Durham, between 10.45am to 11.30am.

Those leading the parade are expected to reach Framwellgate School at around 11.40am.

There will be events at the school from noon to 4pm, including a mega slide, bungee run, ball pool, target football and a clown.

Displays will come from the police, Deerness Gymnastics Club, the Red Cross and others and there will also be live music, stalls and refreshments.

The carnival will raise money for the Rainbow Trust children’s charity and Help for Heroes, the armed force’s charity.

Last year, the event raised £6,000, which was split between Help for Heroes and the Durham City and Framwellgate Moor branch of the Royal British Legion.

Entry to Sunday’s event is free.
