What our community groups say about us

The Southend Community Event may not of gone ahead in 2016 as at the last minute we found out paperwork was not correct thanks to Southend Carnival Events we managed to pull it off, Garry’s, their Chair helped us getting the paperwork correct in time was invaluable to our group. The help did not stop there either on the day whilst setting up Garry attended and advised us on a couple of things as well.
