Chris (Budgie) BurgeAfter 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.

 Tim MartinThe 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.

A really BIG thank-you to everyone who has supported the club this year, we really appreciate it.

Thanks also to the officers for their tireless year-round work: Chairman-Budgie, Seretary-Sophie and Treasurer-Lisa. Thanks too to Martin for this year's design, to Gary (in his first year as Cart Captain) for pushing the build and to Matt for getting us to each carnival and home.

But the biggest thank-you goes to the club members for all their efforts.

We were almost accident free this year, until the very last minute when Gary dropped a scafold pole onto a fire extinguisher...

North Petherton Carnival 2012

E-mail Print PDF

The one weeks "tinckering time" was up but we'd been able to add some more decoration to the tractor and were in high spirits and we headed for North Petherton, notorious for being wet. We had a great procession and crossed the finish line just as the rain started.

 Thanks to TopCat1066 for this YouTude video.
