AN MP who attended a community carnival at the weekend has praised its organisers after a successful day.
MP for Portsmouth South, Stephen Morgan, praised the team behind Portsea Carnival, enjoyed by locals on Saturday.
He said: ‘On behalf of the people of Portsmouth I want to say a massive thank-you to the Portsea Event Group for making the carnival another fantastic success. You have done Portsea and our great city proud.
‘It was a pleasure to work with volunteers to bid for the Arts Council England grant which brought the event alive with colour and costume.’
