Gedling Borough Council is delighted to be supporting the 2017 smokefree summer campaign at this year’s Arnold Carnival.

 The campaign is designed to focus on encouraging people not to smoke or vape in front of children and will include the area directly in front of the main stage during the whole of the event. It will be identified by signs and markers around the area asking smokers and vapers to leave the area and move to the side
