The road-crew met in the car-park in Weston at 10:30 AM and only a hand-full of carts were left. By the time we 'd had a 'light' breakfast is was approaching 11:30 as we left the car-park.
The journey out of Weston went really well with motorists being very paitient and we were soon in a longish queue of carts trundling up the A370 home. Again Highbridge was a breeze as we all swept through and we were soon dropped Gary in the Gennin tractor as he took the trailer into Wheelers to heve the generator removed.
We pushed on with Matt driving the cart and made good progress through Bridgwater and out onto the A361 home. The village was very quiete as we arrived with very little traffic and even Bev had moved her car so that we could get down Liney Rd.
Phil and some other members were already at the shed and had the doors open. Matt reversed the cart in first time (just about) and we sat round with a cup of tea to wait for Gary and the genni trailer, although we only had to wait 10min and before we knew it the trailer was in and the doors secured!
So another year of carnival was over, at the beginning of October it didn't look like we'd make it and after the loss of the decorated tractor we almost packed it in for 2011. But we stuck at it and had a great time, we all made it home safe, but we'll never forget the events of the evening Nov 4th 2011.
