The future running of Cowes Carnival is in the balance this year due to a lack of funds, it has been revealed.
Prior engagements and sickness of organisers from the Cowes Carnival Committee has been blamed for a lack of fundraising in the run up to the 2013 season, with some £1,500 still needed for decorations and a further £2000 needed for insurance and licences by the end of April.
Each year Cowes Carnival costs around £10,000 to run, including the Christmas carnival.
Sponsors and donations are being requested to secure the future of the carnival, which is set to take place in July.
