Paul was very proud to have been recently awarded the title of Grande Duke for the forthcoming Oswaldtwistle Carnival being held this Sunday 24th June. Nominations were handed in to the Carnival Committee followed by a vote to elect the new Grande Duke. Paul was awarded the title for his contribution to his local community. He will accompany Valerie Martin as the Grande Dame. Watch out for him in the procession that starts at 12noon at the SPAR on Thwaites Road, it will then turn left and continue on Union Road before turning left into Harvey Street to dismiss at the Carnival Fields at Whiteash and Foxfields!!
