Carnival float motoring thanks to Selco

July 4th, 2024
Wickford Town Carnival Team Cinderella Float

Cinderella will go to the ball this summer – or at least eight carnivals across Essex – thanks to the support of Selco.

We're delighted to be backing the Wickford Town Carnival Team bringing summer joy across Essex during carnival season after it opted for a Cinderella carriage theme for its float this year.

To help ensure the float is looking as impressive as possible, our Chelmsford branch has provided around £400 worth of building materials, such as plywood, paint and sheet fixings.

Sean Ellis, chairman of the Wickford Town Carnival Team, said: “It’s always an extremely busy time of the year as we work to get the float ready for the summer season and then take it on the road.

“Selco have been fantastic in their support, having helped us last year when we created an Alice in Wonderland theme and then doing likewise this time around.

“Having them provide the materials takes a lot of pressure off and ensures we can focus on making sure the float is as interactive and engaging as possible as it goes in front of thousands of Essex residents.”

The Cinderella float made its first appearance at Braintree & Bocking Carnival, will appear at its ‘home’ Wickford Carnival on September 14 and also visit other local events including in Witham, Basildon and Clacton.

Lee Powling, manager of our Chelmsford branch, said: “We are committed to supporting the communities in which we operate and are delighted to have provided the Wickford Carnival Team with the products and materials to make their float look as impressive as possible.

“Carnivals are a real focal point of communities during the summer and we're delighted to play a small part in helping the Wickford team entertain the crowds from across the whole of Essex.”
