A SPECIAL event to select this year's Swanage Carnival Ambassadors has been announced.

Swanage Bay View holiday park will host the carnival ambassador competition and disco next month.

Entrants, their friends and families can attend.

A carnival committee spokesman said: "The ambassadors are a key part of our carnival, getting involved in lots of fun activities throughout the week.

Carnival ambassadors represent Swanage Carnival at a range of local events, promote the charitable aspect of carnival and support the committee by assisting with fundraising events.

"Entering the competition to become an ambassador couldn’t be easier.

"Youngsters who want to take part buy a numbered ticket on the night and if your number is drawn at random you are a winner.

"It is that simple."

Carnival ambassadors must be aged between eight and 14 on the day of the competition and disco, March 13, 2020.

The evening will start at 7.30pm.

Entry forms and full details are available on the night or from the swanagecarnival.com website.

The entry fee is £3.
