ORGANISERS of Portishead Carnival have announced the date for the town's carnival for this year.

The event, which promises to be another spectacular day for the town, will take place on June 14.

One of the organisers, Wendy Watkins, said: "Since Portishead Carnival was revived in 2003 we have had around 30 floats entering the procession each year.

"We don't expect this year to be any different, however even more would be great.
