2019 Marple Carnival to close with a BANG!

Artillery Demonstration in Memorial Park 3:45pm on Saturday 15th June 2019

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/D8aDGnXWwAE7pEd.jpg)

Marple Carnival Committee has been granted permission by Stockport MBC to close the Carnival celebrations with a demonstration firing by a military enthusiasts’ artillery unit, the 69th Field Regiment Display. The demonstration firing will showcase the unit’s 25 pound field gun. Persons of a nervous disposition, and dog owners with their animals, are advised to leave the park prior to the start of the firing display at 3:45pm.
 
During the demonstration, the Skatepark will be closed and an exclusion zone directly in front of the line of fire will be established for safety reasons.

Organisers apologise for any noise nuisance to Memorial Park users and neighbouring households.

A little later than usual but I'm pleased to advise that we now have an album of photos from the 2019 Carnival:

A big thank you to Arthur Procter and Adam Featherston via @Brabyns Prep School for sharing their photos.

It is also worth noting that the Virtual History Tour has individual albums for every carnival going back to 2007 and an album of "Vintage Carnivals" for earlier than that.

Can someone explain to me why the Carnival parade has to stop on Buxton Lane EVERY YEAR and park itself there, crashing and banging and blocking the road, until the entire neighbourhood was thrown into chaos and residents can't get out of their houses? As far as I know, residents were not warned of the chaos to come, before the carnival appeared on its doorstep.

I had an appointment on the Saturday afternoon which I had to cancel because couldn't get my car out of the drive. I also had my cat in hysterics due to the noise and vibrations and that was inside the house - heaven help her if she had been outside. This normally placid animal, who isn't afraid of anything and has been seen to see off a badger and a dog three times her size, vanished and was eventually found squashed behind the floor mounted gas central heating boiler - she refused to come out until nearly 9pm. If the boiler had been on she would have fried.

(And before people start on "in-comers" I was born and brought up in Marple and my parents and grandparents had been in business in Marple since 1926 and I was on the (then) "Chamber of Trade" float in the first modern carnival in the 1960s)

From this thread in April, repeated in May, the Carnival is always on the third Saturday in June, so here is your early warning for Saturday 20 June 2020.
