After the tragic events of Friday night (M5 Crash) North Petherton Carnival commity took the decision to canel Saturday's carnival as the motorway was still closed and the carnival route was on the main diversion route.
On my way into Brigdwater to collect the cart I found Darren and Trevor deep inside the tractors engine. They had found some extra bits in the sump, piston No., no wonder it was makeing such a horrible noise!
So all we had to do was move the 50 or so carts through to Burnham. We arrived at the cart at 9:00 AM to be told there would be a meeting at 1PM, at that meeting it was decided to move the carts starting at 2PM, but we didn't leave Bridgwater until about 5PM. The move through to Burnaham went well and we were soon parked-up, the only problem was that our entry number was 52, but there was no position 52 marked out for us! Once that little administrative error was sorted there was just time to get home and shower before tonight's party.
Westonzoylnd CC hosts a party in the Village community center every year after North Petherton Carnival and invites many other clubs. At this years party we had a minutes silince to remember those who had lost there lives.
