It's been a really good year and the final job is to remove the generator and put the cart back in the shed.

 Removing Generateor

A really BIG thank-you to everyone who has supported the club this year, we really appreciate it.

Thanks also to the officers for their tireless year-round work: Chairman-Budgie, Seretary-Sophie and Treasurer-Lisa. Thanks too to Martin for this year's design, to Gary (in his first year as Cart Captain) for pushing the build and to Matt for getting us to each carnival and home.

But the biggest thank-you goes to the club members for all their efforts.

We were almost accident free this year, until the very last minute when Gary dropped a scafold pole onto a fire extinguisher...

New tractor arrives

E-mail Print PDF

With just 4 weeks before our first carnival we finally get our hands on our new tractor. After valliant efforts to repair our old Case 1694 the decision was finaly made to scarp it and purchase a new vehicle. If you'd need spares for one of these tractors, please contact us.

After many meeting during which the different merits of vehicle type Lorry/Tractor/Tug and braking systems Air/Oil/Air-Over-Oil were discussed it was finally decided to stick with the tried and trusted agricultural tractor. After much searching a Ford 9700 was found.

Thanks to Gary for driving the tractor back early on Sunday morning, sadly this coincided with the first frost of the year and there was no windscreen in the tractor!

A big Thanks to Ken Boobyer for all his efforts in finding and preparing the tractor in such a short time-frame.

And after just four weeks it looked like this:

Completed Tractor (almost)

Our only worry now is that VOSA will take the decision to ban tractors all together and we'll have to find a lorry!

North Petherton Carnival 2012

E-mail Print PDF

The one weeks "tinckering time" was up but we'd been able to add some more decoration to the tractor and were in high spirits and we headed for North Petherton, notorious for being wet. We had a great procession and crossed the finish line just as the rain started.

After all the dissapointment with the tractor last year we arrived in Bridgwater in good shape, although it was a shame a little more of the paint didn't have time dry.A big thanks to Gary and the team for getting the cart to Parkway in good time, we even had time to sit down and have a cuppa before the parade!The cart looked magnificant as we set of and a 3rd in class was a well deserved result.

Thanks to "Al Crook" for this YouTube video.
