NOTTING HILL CARNIVAL

Notting Hill Carnival takes place in London every August bank holiday, and is the most colourful and largest street event in the UK. The festival celebrates the traditions of the Afro-Caribbean community, who emigrated to England from the West Indies in the 1950s. They brought with them the Caribbean idea of the carnival, with colourful costumes, processions, steel bands and street dancing. Preparations for the carnival start many months in advance. Costumes need to be made, and floats built, ready for the carnival street procession. Steel bands practise traditional Caribbean music on instruments built from used oil barrels. Just before the festival, the streets are decorated with yellow, green and red streamers, and amplifying devices are set in place, to carry the rhythmic sounds over the roar of the London traffic. The carnival is celebrated over three days, and is full of music and colour. Processions of steel and brass bands, floats, and dancers in colourful costumes make their way through the narrow London streets, watched by tens of thousands of people. The streets are lined with stalls selling tropical fruits, such as fresh mangoes, watermelons and pineapple. Everyone dances - young and old, black and white - and even the policemen on duty take part in the fun. For these three days in August, a little Caribbean magic touches the streets of London.

Choose the word that best fits each blank space in the following passage.

Lucy Hughes, a 24-year-old English , has used skin and scales from fish to create a new kind of plastic that will break down in about six weeks.

As a designer, Ms. Hughes was very of how wasteful many products are. Plastic items, for example, are often made from brand new plastic, used once for a short time, and then away. She decided to challenge herself to make something out of waste instead.

After some tests, Ms. Hughes decided that the fish skin and scales seemed like the most likely parts for her product. She tried over 100 different – many of them on her kitchen stove – before getting things just right.

Ms. Hughes called her finished product “MarinaTex”. MarinaTex is clear and feels like plastic, but it’s stronger than regular plastic that is the same thickness.

MarinaTex is also cheap to make since it’s made from fish waste. Ms. Hughes says that the waste from one Atlantic cod (a fish) could make 1,400 bags. The of making MarinaTex also doesn’t use much energy.

Her invention won this year’s James Dyson Award. She hopes the award money will help her with the process of getting MarinaTex into use as quickly as possible.
