Burnham's Hillview cart wins second at North Petherton Carnival

Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club won second place at North Petherton Carnival on Saturday night (November 6th), bouncing back from their disappointment on the night before.

The club's theatrical-themed cart, called The Show, impressed the judges with their enthusiasm.

It came after Hillview suffered a puncture at the start of Friday's Bridgwater Carnival, holding up the whole procession.

"All went much better at Saturday's North Petherton Carnival," Hillview Chairman Mark Bishop told

The cart achieved second place in its category behind Marina Sydenham in first place. Toppers were third.

The huge cart has cost £12,000 to build and is decorated with over 10,000 lights, half of which are environmentally-friendly.

Hillview will be on show at the Burnham Carnival on Monday evening.
