THE Rowner Carnival in Gosport has been given a £1,000 boost.

The theme of this year’s event was princes and princesses, and Hampshire county councillor Graham Burgess, who also opened the carnival, announced that he was going to pass on £1,000 from his 
budget to the organisers to pay for events in the future.
