Who Is Planning The Event?

Weymouth Carnival has been the life and soul of Weymouth for over a century bringing in huge
amounts of monies to the local economy and driving up tourism for Weymouth whilst also helping local businesses.

Kallum Gethins and Jake Brewer are registered Directors of “The Weymouth Carnival C.I.C”, they decided to register under a Community Interest company because Community interest companies don’t quite work like standard businesses. Nor do they quite work like standard not-for-profit enterprises. To fulfil its unique mission, a community interest company must commit to certain obligations when it comes to tax, accounting, and other financial arrangements.

CICs are taxed in the same way as normal companies. They are subject to corporation tax and VAT and a CIC that makes donations to charity can deduct this as a charge when calculating its profit for corporation tax purposes.

C.I.C Structure

The business structure for “The Weymouth Carnival C.I.C consists of a committee; a group of people appointed for a specific role by a larger group and typically consisting of members of that group so be it “The Weymouth Carnival C.I.C.”

Inside the committee will be members of the following:

  • Chairman
  • Vice Chairman
  • Treasurer
  • Secretary
  • Health & Safety Officer
  • Hospitality
  • Logistics
  • Social Media
  • Council Liason
  • Music Event Planner
  • Trades & Stalls
  • Enviromental Officer

Each person on the committee will be assigned a role through a democratic process.
