Alsager 2001 Mission Statement

Alsager 2001 is a voluntary organisation set up by a small group of local artists.
We would like to see Alsager Carnival become a regular part of Alsager life. We very much hope that local groups will 'join in' and make the Carnival their own.

The Carnival is a chance for people and groups to come together to celebrate and acknowledge their achievements, to represent Alsager as a whole and to develop our Community Identity.

If you would like to join us or can offer any help please contact:

Alison Thomas: 01270 872050 or
