ROMSEY Carnival’s 2014 programme gets under way next week with a Spring Quiz.

Funds raised at the battle of wits on Wednesday (March 19) will go to carnival charities. David Wilson Homes is sponsoring the event at Romsey Comrades Club. Entry costs £5 per team of four entry and the quiz starts at 8pm.

Carnival spokesman Peter Lomer said that the committee is already busy preparing for the summer carnival in July and the winter parade in November.

“The summer events include the bed race with a longer route and new this year is a children’s go-kart race on Tuesday, July 15 in addition to the normal quiz and procession events,” said Mr Lomer.

He added that the committee was considering staging a “Jive Night” on July 18 and more details would be released shortly.
