Mardi Gras Preparation

Saturday 29th June 2019 is Mardi Gras Time for Equals IW. 

We have two places for anybody who wants to join in at the last minute. We need a Group Safety Marshal and spare hands to carry the banners.

Team members whom are performing as part of the main group need to be at Ryde Private School for 1.30pm.

Those who have equipment and materials will be informed of their arrival times on Wednesday evening* when we transform the Dragon to a Lizard.

Please all meet up at the Equals IW base camp (number 23) in the main field.

There will be no parking at the school for those performing team members who are not bringing equipment.

There is paid parking at either LA Bowing Car Park or at Ryde Canoe Lake. From there it is a walk up to to the school but note that your car will be near where the procession ends. Please be aware of parking charges. Alternatively park in either East Hill Road or West Hill Road where there are no parking charges and walk through Ryde to the School. 

Team members are invited to the Captain's Table Café next to Ryde Swimming Pool after the Mardi Gras for a free drink as a massive thank you from the trustees. Everyone's help made it possible for us to take part in the Mardi Gras 2019 .

Maybe we can dance along to the café and relax in friendship. 

The weather on Saturday looks wonderful so remember sunscreen and water bottles.

* Wednesday June 26th 2019 is when a small team are meeting at 6pm at Coppins Bridge Car Park to travel over to Bonchurch to transform the Dragon to a Lizard.
