Our theme has been chosen - Musical Hanwell.
Hanwell has a long and proud musical tradition. The Hootie last year proved that music is in our blood not in our past. This theme is bound to be vibrant and noisy - the perfect companion for a carnival.
So the theme has been decided, the date set and now it is time to recruit our Royal family for 2014.
The Queen, princess and prince take pride of place at the head of the procession as it makes its way through Hanwell. They also get to enjoy befitting outfits, a bit of pampering and a ride in a vintage car.
Candidates for the Queen need to be at least 18 years old, while the princess and prince must be eight years or over. The only other criteria are that applicants must be proud of where they live and excited about becoming a community champion.
Carnival organisers are also hoping to recruit an army of volunteers and they are holding a social evening on Friday 21 March to drum up support.
They are keen to hear from people who want to set up a stall, parade in the procession or show off their skills on the music or community stages.
The invite is very much extended to anyone who was involved last year – from the sponsors and charities to the musicians and volunteers.
The social will take place at the Inn on the Green, Lower Boston Road, from 8pm.
