BAILDON Carnival Association is in need of more people to serve as marshals and stewards at this year’s event.

The Carnival and its parade are entirely managed, staffed and funded by the local community. But the number of volunteers is currently too low to meet safety requirements.

A spokesperson for Baildon Carnival Association said: "The role of a marshal/steward is a great way to support the event and is also good fun.

"The event’s survival relies on having enough people willing to help."

The carnival will be held on Saturday, July 11, at Jenny Lane Fields, with the parade starting before from Ian Clough Car Park.
