Basildon and Pitsea Carnival

Tributes to a man who always cared about business & fun
for the common good

– the outgoing chairman of Basildon & Pitsea Carnival, Mr. George Coleman-Wood

Some three years ago, George  invited our business to attend one of Essex’s largest carnival events, even though, operating from rural Essex, we had little monies and weren’t able to guarantee that we can pay the pitch fees. It was, I think, George’s carnival number 51, back in 2012. Thank you for the friendship great man!

It is said, “A friendship is one of the nicest gifts you can give yourself.”  So today, we thank our good friend, the outgoing Chairman of the Basildon Carnival Association, George Coleman-Wood and his many volunteers on the showground. It is well-known saying: “Behind every great man is a strong team.” In this case, we express gratitude to George for his steadfast commitment to our food stall.  Moving on, there is a famous saying: “It may be hard for the new person to fill the shoes of the predecessor.” His achievements were simply astonishing.

We enjoyed being in Basildon on an annual basis to spoil the fun loving community and it will be the fourth year this season for our can to be sent to this wonderful carnival event.

I am sure George will still be involved with the carnival and we wish him Good Health and Luck for many more years to come.
