Eric Mills
Eric is the Band Leader of Nottingham Carnival Club, which he has been a member of since its early days. As the carnival is an African Caribbean inspired tradition, Eric believes that bringing such a celebration to Nottingham has enriched the life of all communities. However, he considers that sometimes people lack such motivation and have difficulties in working together towards building a better society. As the Carnival Club was a great way of bringing people together, Eric is proud of having been one of its founding members.

Eric uses such occasions to encourage the younger generation to be more socially active and to take advantage of the opportunities they encounter, as communities need young people`s support in order to evolve.
