Model raft race is new idea for Carnival

Have your say

A NEW attraction at next year’s Grantham Carnival will be a model raft race.

The carnival committee is inviting entries into the fun activity, which is a good opportunity to be creative and also to raise money for Grantham Hospice.

There will be a fee of £2 per model raft, and competitors are also encouraged to gain sponsorship.

Rafts must measure no more than 500mm long and 300mm wide. They will enter the water at the Redcross Street bridge and cross the finish line at the white bridge.

There are four classes - under 11s, over 12s, commercial and others.
