Wills Carnival Club needs help finding a new base

Burnham and Highbridge Weekly News: Wills Carnival Club needs help finding a new base Wills Carnival Club needs help finding a new base

A PIECE of carnival history could be lost if a long-established club can't find a place to build its cart for the 2015 procession.

Wills Carnival Club from Bridgwater was formed 63 years ago, but now there's a risk it might be forced to fold if it fails to find a permanent home to build its cart as well as attract new members.

The club managed to find a temporary home in East Huntspill after a plea in the paper last year, but the contract was only for two years.

Paul Barker, chairman, said: “Memberships are dwindling because nobody wants to join a club with no home.”

The club is looking for about an acre of land to rent on a permanent basis where members can build their cart and keep their equipment.

If you have land to rent or are interested in joining Wills CC, call Scott Gibbs on 07531-432782.
