Launceston Town Councillor Dave Gordon deserves our support for the efforts he is putting in to reviving Launceston Carnival.
The Carnival used to be run by the Lions but stopped 6 years ago because of difficulties over insurance and health adn safety fears. Since then, people say, the town has lacked a bit of social spirit - or community glue as Dave has called it.
Last week about 30 people got together to discuss geeting the carnival back on track and, although I wasn't there, I'm backing these efforts to the hilt. If any readers want to back a revived carnival, then come along to a meeting on January 29th. Call Dave on 774706 for more information.
