Westonzoyland Carnival Club

The roof goes on

E-mail Print PDF

As the first carnival date approaches (carnival dates) our new shed is starting to take shape. The steel frame that went up two weeks has now been topped with a roof and some gutters. There is a long running club joke, where Mr Sprags said he would start wiring the emergency lighting once the gutters are done, well the gutter are on!

Shed with roofThanks to a huge effort by many club members and a number of local build friends who have given their time for free, the "Great Wall of Westonzoyland" is now well out of the ground. We have to build an 80' long and 20' high wall between our shed and the neighboring farm to act as a fire break, which has added quite a delay to the project - let's hope the weather holds out. All being well the new concrete floor should go in next week and then we'll get a really good feel for how big the shed really is.

There is still some debate about how many weeks there will be between the shed being finished and the first carnival, but however it works out there won't be much build-time this year!

Ups and Downs Cheque Presentation

Ups and Downs cheque presentationLocal charity, Ups and Downs Southwest, was presented with a cheque for nearly £250 by the Westonzoyland Carnival Club.
The Westonzoyland-based charity was set up by Wendy O’Carroll 17 years ago, when her son, Oliver, was born with Down’s syndrome. The charity has supported around 500 families who have a child with Down’s syndrome across the Southwest. Wendy says: “about 50 babies will be born with Down’s syndrome in the Southwest this year. We want to make sure we are there for them with the right support and information at the right time. We help families and children right from birth all way up to college, for example running play groups, family days and youth clubs. We also provide a Schools Advisory Service supporting schools with information about how to get the most from their pupil who has Down’s syndrome.”

E-mail Print PDF

Westonzoyland Carnival Club shed received a stay of demolition this week as it host 6 evacuees from the floods on the Somerset levels.

The shed had been cleared ready to be demolished for the new build later in the year, but after club members were flooded out of their farm a new home was needed for their livestock.

A day of hard work by several club members and the last of the debris from the shed was cleared, fences erected and gates hung ready for the new arrivals. 

Later that evening as the rain came down 4 tractors with animals, feed, and bedding arrived. Once the water troughs were filled and the evacuated calves fed, they were shut up for the night.
