Coming up to carnival the preparations are in progress! The good news is, the local village road shows, that were banned last year and prevented by the police, are being allowed this year, within reasonable hours and areas, and our village held it's first road show today. It was good to see a real cross section of the community enjoying themselves, embracing the culture and unhampered by bad behaviour. We are experiencing an unprecedented amount of youth violence at the moment, "badness out o' style" not being observed by the disaffected youth that so badly need a voice,
positive role models and direction.
