Track Santa through Doddington!

Santa Claus is coming… to Doddington!!

Well, we know that on Christmas Day Santa will be visiting EVERY house in the ENTIRE WORLD, but we’re talking specifically about him coming to visit the boys and girls of Doddington ahead of the big day, mostly to find out what everyone would like for Christmas.

As mention in our previous blog post, we’ve booked him for a tour of Doddington on the 8th, 9th and 10th of December this year.  But here’s the thing…

YOU CAN SEE WHERE SANTA IS, and find out how long it’ll be before he comes to your house!!

How? Well… the kind elves have lent us one of Santa’s tracking units, and our Carnival IT-Geeks have attached this to our website, meaning that all you have to do, is go to the Doddington Carnival website (www.doddingtoncarnival.co.uk) on your computer, laptop, tablet or smart phone, and you’ll see a map of where Santa is right now! 

As we drive him through the village, the map will auto-update and show his latest location! Magic!

Welcome to 2018!

We blinked,  and 2017 came and went just as quickly!We had a great year in terms of the various events that we’ve put on throughout 2017, and we have no doubt that 2018 will be any different.In 2017, we had pub quizzes and discos, the Carnival and Sports Day, finishing it all off with the Santa Run.  2018 will see more of the same, but with a different twist, as we keep getting emails and Facebook messages to say that you all love what we’re doing, and the reading makes for some humbling feelings in and around the Carnival Committee.  Here’s but a few about the Carnival and Sports Day:"Thanks team loved it once again . This year bought back memories of childhood felt great lots of fun had . Water this year when I was a kid it was flour and eggs lol x" - Sarah Sellers (via Facebook)"Thank you and well done to the committee. Yesterday was another amazing day thanks to the commitment and hard work of volunteers.
Such a brilliant day. Thank you x"

Wiki…what?

Question: ”Would you like to not only help the
Doddington Village Sports and Carnival,
but also help the WHOLE OF THE INTERNET?”Well, now you can, and from the comfort of your own home!Here’s what we mean.  We’ve noticed that there’s a piece of internet history that’s currently missing on the following Wikipedia page:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doddington,_Cambridgeshire…namely, the part about the Doddington Village Sports and Carnival!In case you’re not in the know, here’s a quick link to what Wikipedia is and what it’s all about: Wikipedia: Introduction.Now, according to Wikipedia’s rules, we’re not allowed to add this missing piece, as we’re ‘too close to the subject’, meaning that as we’re part of the Carnival Committee, we’re not best placed to add to Wikipedia, as we’d be biased writing about the work that we do, and the fun and enjoyment that we all get back from it.BUT YOU CAN!So, here’s your task: Add the Doddington Village Sports and Carnival to the internet’s his…

Carnival communication is a little Slack…

The Doddington Village Sports and Carnival committee is a great team to work with, but like many other groups, we have had our fair share of issues in communicating within our 20+ team. We would use email, SMS and more recently, WhatsApp, to send questions, comments and reminders within the group, and with a group larger than about 4 or 5, this can start to get a little out of control.Take for example, a simple emailed question about the cost of entry to the event, from me to Erica, the Treasurer, but I might have CC'd Jason the Chairman on it, for his reference. Erica might 'Reply All' to the email, but add Ian onto it as well, as he may has asked that question separately. But then Jason replies, asking to confirm the opening time is 13:30 . Ian replies to this, and soon a different conversation begins. Each time, emails are getting longer and longer, and the history of each thread of the conversation is carried around with the reply at each stage, meaning that, as a reci…
