The greatest gift we have to give, is to be of Public Service.
Once again Kerry Marlow and his team will do just that and give of time and effort for the enjoyment of residents and visitors alike, to organise the Porthcawl Carnival.
With changing times within our community it is reassuring to know that some things don't change and the Carnival being a well established tradition will continue for another year.
The community comes together and celebrates a wonderful day out for everyone and it's this sense of community that creates everlasting memories. Memories can't be bought or sold and stay with us forever.
Enjoy your day, have a great time and I pray for good weather. Well done Kerry and team and a big thank you from me

The Porthcawl Buckaneers are busy raising funds for local charities and good causes. Last year combined with the Christmas Morning Swim we donate to local causes. Monies raised is donated to local good causes.The theme of the carnival is ‘Musicals.’
Please dig deep and help your community.
On the carnival eld there will be a number of attractions and displays by local groups.
This year we have licences to collect donations as follows
Saturday 15th July 2017 in John Street, Porthcawl, when we will be handing out our annual carnival
magazine, which has been funded by the kind donations of the business community of Porthcawl.
Please take one and put a donation in our bucket. We will be joined Porthcawl Community Orchestra ensuring music for all tastes.
Friday 21st July 2017 when we will be visiting all the local hostelries. So dig deep and help us with raising funds.
Saturday 22nd July 2017, Carnival day. Many thanks to the Sandville, Porthcawl Girl Guides, Porthcawl Sea Cadets and Ty Elis for providing us with collectors and many other volunteers.
If you have a good cause or organisation that you wish to collect for, come and help us and we will
make a donation to your cause. We are always looking for assistance on our collection days.
We have been encouraged by the numerous volunteers who have joined our Group to assist in the organisation, planning and work to ensure the carnival continues. Without community involvement it would be dif cult to continue the annual carnival.

“A mad cap tomfoolery
of comic action. Two unheeding Franco, Latinos are on holiday in your town and they’ve bought with them their own mode of transport, the severed bicycle, a front and back half with nothing in between.Which equates precisely with the space between their ears, because they are lost, don’t speak the lingo and are creating mayhem wherever they go.”
