Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club wins third place at Bridgwater

Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club won third place at Bridgwater Carnival on Friday night (November 4th).

The club's colourful cart, called 'One Way Ticket', was met with cheers from large crowd lining the route during its first appearance of this year's carnival season.

Decorated with more than 10,000 light bulbs, many of which are environmentally-friendly, the cart has cost the club around £12,000 to build.

The team were pleased to get a third place in the juvenile category.

Hillview's Chairman, Mark Bishop, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was a very busy last few hours, with the team working very hard to get everything finished in time. We're now looking forward to the Burnham Carnival on Monday."
