Part of MC14’s plan to revive The Morecambe Carnival was to reinstate the awards that in the past were given to outstanding floats in various categories. However many of the previous trophies have been misplaced over the years so the MC14 committee decided that a new set of awards would be started, many local businesses have generously sponsored these awards. To them we offer our thanks for helping to recreate this piece of Morecambe’s heritage.
Thanks to our judging panel for 2014 – Film & TV Stuntman Martin Shenton, The Bay Radio Host Danny Matthews and EverYoung.
