Member of Parliament for Portsmouth South praises community organisers of ‘Portsea Carnival’ today (Saturday 11 August 2018)
Stephen Morgan MP joined hundreds of local families leading the Portsea Carnival with the Lord Mayor of Portsmouth through the city’s streets today.
The event, in its second year, is completely organised by local mums and community groups in Portsea. A parade took place around the area starting and finishing at the popular John Pounds Centre.
Recognising the hard work of volunteers the city MP Stephen Morgan said:
“On behalf of the people of Portsmouth and this community I want to say a massive thank you to the PEG for making Carnival another fantastic success. You have done Portsea and our great city proud.
It was a pleasure to work with the team of volunteers to bid for the Arts Council grant which brought the event alive with colour and costume and secure the future of this fantastic community celebration.
Very well done to all those who made today so special for families in our city and a day for Portsmouth to remember forever”.
