Chard Carnival Results

12 10 2010

There were a few hold ups to this years procession, due to some casualties away from the carnival route. The ambulances had to traverse some of the route; with 2 ambulances from different directions meeting at one point! It was the floats last year, ambulances this year!

Chairperson Helena Stone said “I was very pleased with how the carnival went, and felt it was one of the best carnivals in Chard for a long time. We had the right weather, a good sized crowd and a very good line-up of entries. I was also pleased to see so many of the traders in Chard had kept their shops open into the night.

I would like to thank Chard Town Council for their grant of £900 towards carnival costs, Cllrs Jenny Kenton and Jill Shortland for the grant of £500 to cover license fees, PRS for Music, who have sponsored half of our license fees and finally, everyone who supported Chard Carnival, either by watching, or taking part, without which we couldn’t continue.”

The overall winners for floats and walking will not be announced until the South Somerset Federation of Carnival’s annual dance on November 20.  The results from the night are available to download here (PDF) Chard Carnival 2010 Results
