BASILDON and Pitsea Carnival has been re-scheduled.

The popular event, which includes a procession through the town centre and a huge fete at Northlands Park, was due to take place tomorrow.

The carnival is now set to take place on Saturday, September 6.

Organisers failed to secure an extra £2,000 of vital funding, and have battled with a string of "personal problems."

One does remember Pitsea / Basildon 'carnival' times. It was usually an extension of the popular scenes for fights, shouting-matches, smash-ups and general degenerate activity conducted by many of the local residents (in-mates?) of the area. Much of that both emanated from, or led to, the Railway pub which I gather is no longer. What with the dodgy goods, unfortunate relations leading to undesirable offspring, it would be better all round if the nonsense of a 'carnival' could be put to rest for all time. Best move I ever made was to leave the place and the majority of its' in-bred thugs in order to persue and better my prospects in a civilised environment!
