The six directors of Dawlish Carnival would like to inform everyone that the Meeting being held tomorrow night in the Brunswick Arms will not be recognized by Dawlish Carnival. We informed Mr Force on Sunday evening, via e-mail, that we would not be going ahead with this meeting as he had made it a public meeting by going on social media websites & putting it in the press. We agreed on a meeting with a small group of people who Mr Force said had approached him saying they wish to help carnival, in today's Dawlish Gazette page 2 it says businessman David Force has instigated the public meeting. We are happy to hear from anyone who truly wants to help out, please come down to the Christmas Market this year & give your details to one of our committee members on the stall by the Christmas grotto or you can contact us via our website www.dawlishcarnivalentertainment.co.uk/
not Mr Force or The Dawlish Gazette as they are not part of Dawlish Carnival.
