Old Town Roadworks will not affect Carnival 2015

10 09 2015

After meeting with the Highways Agency and those conducting the roadworks in Old Town, Chard we can confirm there will be no changes to the route or road closures for Carnival Night.
We have been assured that the roadworks on the section within the Carnival route will be finished by 10th October or if not finished the road surface will be made usable and all roadwork equipment/barriers will be removed.
Everything will go ahead as planned and we are keeping up communication with the Highways Agency.
I look forward to seeing you all there on Carnival night!

Hi Brenda, I’d recommend you park in either of the major supermarket car parks in Chard as these are open all night. Of the two it would probably be easier to get out of the Sainsbury’s car park after the carnival finishes as the Tesco car park reopens later due to the carnival going back to Numatics. The road closures will go on in Chard at 6.30pm so try to be here in enough time and usually all closures are taken off at roughly 10.30pm. We hope you have a great night!
