The very first Wokingham Winter Carnival was a Community Project in 1994 brought about by Keith Hoskins, the then Town Centre Manager, and a few town centre shop owners.
Since the early years it has grown in size and now benefits from the support of Wokingham Town Council, The Wokingham Society, Cantley House Hotel, The Wokingham Times and some business sponsors. Many businesses within the town centre and several from the Wokingham area also come forward each year to give their time and energy to make it such a success.
The committee are also very grateful for the continued support of Wokingham West Forest Round Table and West Forest 41 Club both on the day and in the preparations.
Despite the changes over the years the aims have remained the same to:
All while having fun!
- provide a FREE event for all the family and help nurture community spirit
- encourage young people to get involved and feel valued
- raise some funds for local charities
