After more than 20 years at the helm, Chris (Budgie) Burge stood down as chairman of Westonzoyland Carnival Club at last nights AGM (6/1/12). Chris has steered the club through many up’s and down’s and has decided that this year (his 40th in carnival) is going to be a less stressful one. All members past and present would like to say a big thank-you to Chris for all he has done over the years.
The man who stepped up to fill Budgie’s shoes is Tim Martin. Tim has been a member of Westonzoyland Carnival Club for since 1995 and served as Cart Captain for many of those. He is our lead engineer and has a real passion for carnival. We all wish Tim the best in his new position.
Another big change at the AGM was the resignation of Sophie Lang as Secretary, Sophie has served the club for many years in this demanding role and we wish her all the best in the furture.
In other news; Lisa Heard was re-elected as Treasurer and Gary Spraggs as Cart captain.
