Meet 104-year-old Grace, who was one of the oldest street artists in the world! Grace took part in an initiative of "yarn-bombing" her local town with these colourful creations.

I am sure Watchet has similar "Yarn-bombing" artists - what a fabulous creative way to decorate the town and what a delight it would be to see such a colourful display adorning Watchet to welcome visitors and our carnival procession in July. #wonderfulcommunity #makingmemories# #lovecarnival# 😍Meet 104-year-old Grace, who was one of the oldest street artists in the world!

Watchet Carnival

We need your help. We need donations of any unwanted gifts or items suitable for a raffle/draw prize for our Carnival fundraising. If you can spare any unwanted items, perhaps an unopened box of chocolates from Christmas or could give a gift that would be suitable as a raffle/draw prize for our forthcoming Carnival Fundraisers - each and every donation makes a difference. Please always keep Watchet Carnival in mind.

We would be very grateful to receive 'gift voucher'/raffle prize donations, "anything" that helps from local businesses. Any contribution 'big' or 'small' would be very much appreciated.

If you can help with a raffle prize or a donation, please get in touch. ☎️Tel: Sandie on 01984 632783.

Many thanks.
