my first time here for the Whitstable Carnival … unfortunately, once again, I was without my camera … doh! all photos taken with my Sony Ericsson mobile …

Whitstable Carnival has traditionally been an opportunity for local residents, businesses and organisations to get together and have some fun.

For businesses and groups, the carnival presents an excellent marketing opportunity to advertise directly to the local community, as well as visitors to the town.

During the parade Whitstable is represented by the Carnival Court which is made up of a group of young people who have been chosen to act as ambassadors for the town.

The Court will attend carnivals around East Kent during the summer and are expected to carry out civic duties and responsibilities throughout the year.

Born and raised in Perth, Western Australia to Polish parents, my upbringing was totally influenced by strong family values, Polish culture and customs based on Roman Catholic calendar, as well as the folkloric aspect of dressing up in regional dress and performing in Polish Folk Dancing, as well as the consumption of many home cooked Polish meals. Today, I live with my English husband in the UK, and I am a mother of two (all grown now) and grandma to one (granddaughter 5yrs). I love to travel, walk, take photos, blog, cook and spend time with my family in Australia (when I get the chance). I have a huge interest in natural medicine, which lead me to study at university in my 40's. I love exploring what this life is about, which has included reading motivational, spiritual and self-empowerment books and attending self-empowerment courses.
