Hillview Carnival Club bounces back after power failure
power failure led to Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club pulling
out of Friday's Weston Carnival at the last minute - but the club
returned in great style at North Petherton on Saturday night.
club's Christmas-themed entry, called It's A Cracker, had to abandon
their Weston appearance due to technical difficulties, but then
won second place in their class at North Petherton.
Lyn Burland told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "Everyone at the club
was really disappointed on Friday night. Our generator completely
failed which meant there was no music and no lights and with torrential
rain as well we decided not to take part."
was a difficult decision, but we decided to call it a day for
the children's sake - they couldn't have performed properly."
added: "Fortunately, the generator company visited us on
Saturday and managed to fix the problems, so we were able to get
back out again at North Petherton. We were over the moon to come
second - it was a great evening and a very good result."
club's next carnival is Shepton Mallet on Wednesday night, then
Wells on Friday and Glastonbury on Saturday.
