Masters sponsors Newmarket Carnival for fourth year running
Cambridgeshire-based Masters Logistical was delighted to sponsor Newmarket’s popular annual Carnival once again in 2014. This year’s event on Saturday 5 July attracted large crowds as usual who lined the streets to watch the parade despite the bad weather.
As in previous years Masters provided vehicles for the parade of floats, which started from Tattersall’s and travelled along the High Street to the Severals.
The event’s organiser then requested future Carnival involvement from Masters, to which the company’s Operations Director, Mark Stoodley readily agreed.
Commenting on his firm’s desire to give something back to the local community, Mark Stoodley said:
“We are delighted to help out with Newmarket’s annual Carnival in any way we can. It’s a fun day out for all the family and we like to do our bit to support the town.
Our drivers willingly give up their day each year to be part of the parade not because we ask them to but because they enjoy the experience and feel a sense of pride in helping out.”
The Masters Logistical association with Newmarket Carnival began in 2011 with the supply of a single articulated lorry and trailer to the Stepping Stones pre-school, who contacted Masters in the week before the carnival because they had been let down by a previous sponsor.
Each year the number and types of vehicles supplied has been different, with a peak of nine in 2013 ranging from a 7½t vehicle to articulated vehicles.
The 2014 tally came to seven.
Managing Director, Paul Upton continued: “This year’s carnival was great fun for everyone, as usual. We’re looking forward to 2015 already!”
