Event signs changed because of mistakes PDF Print E-mail

Several signs warning people to expect traffic delays during Sittingbourne carnival had to be changed because they contained spelling mistakes.

The signs which were placed around Sittingbourne referred to the town's "Carnaval" and warned motorists of "Expexted Delays".

Sittingbourne Carnival Association said it had to announce road closures a week before the event, despite the mistakes.

Pam Griggs, from the association, said: "People will either think we are stupid and we can't spell or they will have a good laugh. At least people are reading them."
