OTLEY CARNIVAL 2016 – AGM
Another year and another AGM. On Friday 15th July Otley Carnival
Committee met at the Otley Aged People’s Welfare Centre for its 2016 AGM
where it elected its officers and presented trophies to winners and cheques
to this year’s beneficiaries.
Each beneficiary – Behind Closed Doors, Yorkshire Cancer Research and
Wheatfields Hospice each received an equal share. Their representatives Pat
Dixon, Ros Carthy and Charlotte Stern respectively were there to collect the
cheques from their organisations.
Pat Dixon was also awarded the Hasmukh Shah trophy for the best
collection in a bucket. Georgia & Alex Bentham from Westgate School were
there to collect the Keith Wilkinson Trophy for the best parade entry voted
by the public.
So planning now starts for the 2017 Carnival.
