Commemorative bench unveiled at Minster Green.
Axminster Carnival Committee has shown its community spirit by donating a commemorative bench to mark the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee.
The bench was officially presented to the town last week, and has been installed on the Minster Green.
Money raised from the committee’s carnival street collections were used to purchase the bench.
The carnival committee is already preparing for this year’s procession in the town, which takes place on Saturday, September 15.
It would like to hear from any previous carnival queens who would like to take part.
For more information, contact the carnival’s secretary, Geoff Enticott, on 01297 32147.
