Well done Chard! The total collected at this year’s Carnival was £3,510 and together with funds contributed in pre-Carnival events means that local Groups and Charities will benefit from your generosity.
When all this is collected and bills paid we will be distributing this year’s donations.
It seems to get harder and more expensive to run public events but I hope you will agree with me that this hard work and effort by Clubs, individuals and the Carnival Committee produced another successful Chard Carnival.
It’s so good to see the whole Town coming together to celebrate a unique Somerset event.
The Carnival Committee will be meeting soon.
Any new volunteers will always be welcome to help organize the Carnival and keep this tradition going.
Once again , many thanks to all who either took part or worked in the background to produce Carnival 2015.
Chairman, Chard Carnival Committee

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!
