Danny Howell's Carnival Trail


When Danny Howell offered to take people on a Sunday afternoon historical trail round Warminster, 46 people turned up.

In the final event of the Warminster Carnival fortnight, Danny and the party set out from the Western Car Park and visited Emwell Street, Vicarage Street, Church Street, Silver Street and George Street.

One of the highlights was an exclusive look inside No.7 Vicarage Street, formerly the home of the Minster School caretaker, which has been recently restored by the Warminster Preservation Trust.

A competition, in the form of a riddle, arranged by Danny, yielded four lucky winners - Ann Andrews, S. Spencer, Nick Swann and Monica Foreman. They each received a copy of a book written and signed by Danny.

The two-hour trail finished in the High Street, where Warminster Carnival Chairman Dick Goodenough proposed a vote of thanks.

Danny Howell gave his services free of charge. There was no admission charge to the trail, but when Danny passed his hat round afterwards, just over £30 was collected for Warminster Carnival funds.
