Bulwark Residents Group and the Helston Carnival

Helston Carnival was held on Saturday 7th September. This event has seen a steady increase in participating floats, and this was the best for many years with so many entrants.

The Bulwark Residents Group has been entering the carnival for the last three years. And impressively been rather successful by winning the best small float for the last few years. Last year the group won best over all float of the carnival. This year the group decided to enter as recycling heroes. This was to raise awareness of recycling.


As you can see from the previous picture the group looked fantastic. A lot of effort went into the groups float and the costumes. This is down to the hard work of the group who spend hours if not days on making sure the float and the participants look the best they can.

The next picture is my costume, and the rules the group make – which I have to adhere to – is they make it and I have to wear it. This always has me worried until I see the costume and see the effort they put into it.


Congratulations should go to the organisers of the Helston Carnival for all the hard work they put into this event. Without this work, the event would have disappeared like so many community other events have. A well done should also go to all the other participants in the carnival, who make this a great day for all. The best float of the carnival went to The Blue Anchor, for their summer holiday float.

Lastly, a special thank you should go to the National Trust at Penrose Estate, who kindly supplied the trailer and transport to pull it, and a one of its rangers to drive the float around Helston. Without this support, the group would not be able to enter a float.
