Hedge End Carnival Committee


Each year the money raised by the carnival is distributed to local groups and community organisations. Previous groups that have benefitted have been The Scouts & Guides; Senior Citizens Lunch; Christmas Lights; St John’s Ambulance to name but a few.

Hedge End Carnival is organised by a small group of community spirited people and relies heavily on the generosity of both local businesses and local helpers who are willing to give up some time to ensure this event can take place.

If you would like to volunteer your time to this important community event please contact them directly.
