Stewards were vital

I would be very grateful if I could use the pages of your newspaper to thank all the volunteer stewards at the recent Morecambe Carnival.

The majority of these volunteers spent four hours doing a training course in the weeks leading up to the carnival as well as spending a large part of the carnival day walking alongside the floats.

In addition, can I thank the Morecambe Football Club stewards who also volunteered to help on carnival day and were invaluable? They turned up on the day, donned their high vis and got on with the job; very professional and a credit to the football club.

Can I also thank the Captain of Heysham Golf Club and his caddy, who also volunteered to help steward the parade and get it turned around at the Battery?

It is people like this who are integral to an event’s success and they may go un-noticed. Thank you to you all.
