FAQ

Answer:

Note: This does not apply to the Marshalls helping out on the carnival field.
Road Closure Marshalls are meeting at the Baildon Club at 1pm.
Then getting into position for the road closure to commence at 1.30pm

Answer:

Yes...
At 1.30pm on the day of Baildon Carnival, the streets from the Ian Clough Hall Cark Park are closed from the car park “along Northgate”, up past the Malt Shovel to Websters Fish Shop.
Then we close the main road to the right from the fish shop, “Jenny lane”, all the way up to the Cricket & Rugby Clubs.
The Parade sets off almost straight away and takes about 20 to 30 minutes to arrive safely at the Cricket Club.
As soon as possible, the roads are then reopened, to minimise any disruption to people waiting to use the roads.

We apologise for any disruption caused and always aim to make this as minimal as possible.

We try to be as open and understanding about any concerns and any comments are welcome.
Please email the Chairman at matthew@wildman.co.uk and I will raise them with the Carnival Committee.

Answer:

Baildon's Own “Wildman Computers” created the Website.
As a charity the carnival committee required a website with the following criteria...
  • Very affordable to create and manage. So a maximum return for a minimum outlay.
  • Flexible viewing (so the site could be viewed on phones, tablets, laptops, etc.) The site changes it’s look to adapt to all types and sizes of screens.
  • Informative & Helpful
We hope we managed this, but all comments are welcome.
