Hi and welcome to our website.
Here is a little background on who we are and how we decided to Revive the Chorley Carnival.
The Revival group consists of Karren McCarthy (chairlady), Llio Connor (vice chairlady) & Nicky Pickering (vice chairlady). We are all mums and are all friends.We found ourselves reminiscing about Chorley and the good old days on a group page on Facebook called Chorley then and now (created by Mick Heyes).
We all agreed we have such fond memories of the carnival. The carnival queen, the floats, bands, fairground and music. It was so sad that our children and grandchildren haven't got the memories we have as Chorley coming together as one. They had never witnessed the fun and community feel that we remembered at the Carnival. We wondered why the carnival had been stopped and decided to do everything we could to get the carnival up and running again. We are very passionate about Chorley and bringing our community back together again. We then decided to set up our own group on Facebook (which you can visit by clicking the link on the front page) called Revival of Chorley Carnival We had 1500 members join within 4 days and realized how much others wanted it back also. We are now in charge of bringing back Chorley carnival, and have council backing. The next step is putting everything into place. Why don't you come along to one of our meetings to watch us grow. We know it is going to take a lot of sweat and tears, but we are four very strong minded women. Who are determined to get this show back on the road.
