Weston-Super-Mare 2011

E-mail Print PDF

Here we are alread, our last carnival of 2011. A van full of club members spent Sunday afternoon repairing the roof that fell on our journey up and the road-crew had spent the day checking over the vehicles read for tonight's procession.

It was a clear cool evening and the crowds were again out in force. The procession went smoothly with a lot of appreciation from those looking on, but all too soon we were back at the start. We had quite a high entry number so by the time we finished it was already late. By the time the road-crew secured the vehicle and made there way across to the party at the Winter Gardens it was just after 11PM.

Tractor Recovery

E-mail Print PDF

On the Saturday of Glastonbury Carnival we started the day by recoviering the Decortaed Tractor from the old Half-Way Inn, we would like to say a big thank-you to the new owners for looking after the tractor all week.

Frost RecoveryAnother big thank-you must go to Martin from Frost Recovery who came out to recover the tractor with his new HGV recovery truck. This saved a a lot of time and was by far the safest method of recovery.

Dave and his JCBSadly due the the soft ground surrounding the shed entrance, Martin was unabe to reverse the lorry and tractor into the shed, so we had to call in another favour and ask Dave Branfield to bring round his JCB and put the tractor away.

Earlier in October we suffered a failure of the injector pump which led to the engine racing away, if it hadn't been for the quick thinking of Ken Boobyier we may have lost the tractor much earlier. We'd like to say a big thank-you to our friends ats at Hickleys in Bridgwater for reconditioning the pump at such a good rate.

We are very fortunate in Westonzoyland CC to have so many good friends and we would like to thank all those who have helped us with the tractor this year.

Glastonbury 2011

E-mail Print PDF

The crowds at Glastonbury were huge this year; I don't think I've ever seen so many people there! The night was dry and warm and with the cancellation of North Petherton I guess many who would have gone there came to Glastonbury instead. The procession went well with another good response from the crowd.

Thanks to for this YouTube video.

 From Glastonbury we took the cart across to Weston, the start of the journey was quite slow as we were stuck behind another club’s decorated tractor, we managed to get the cart past but the genie was stuck. When we got to the Piper’s Inn the cart went off up the A39 and the genie went down the A361 to try and by-pass the slow decorated tractor. The journey went very well and we arrived in Weston at about 1AM with the genie arriving about 15 min later. Sadly en-route we lost a section of roof that came down after being weakened by the rain over the past few days and when the gennie arrived we noticed the 3-phase tails had been trailing on the ground  (school-boy error).
