FESTIVAL organisers are asking Kirklees Council to help them celebrate their 10th anniversary.

Deighton Carnival is due to take place on June 25.

Organisers have asked Kirklees to contribute £5,000 to the £30,000 running costs of the event.

The council’s Huddersfield Committee will decide whether to provide the cash at its meeting at Huddersfield Town Hall at 7pm on Wednesday.

The carnival’s organisers have also requested funding from the Deighton and Brackenhall Initiative, the Arts Council and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
