Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club holds presentation night

More than 100 members and supporters of Burnham-On-Sea's Hillview Carnival Club attended the group's annual presentation night on Saturday (March 12th).

Hillview founder Mary Nicholson handed out awards and certificates to members in recognition of their work during a ceremony held at Burnham's Ritz Social Club.

Mary praised the club's members for their "wonderful support and dedication" and thanked the club's many supporters and sponsors.

The Chairman's Choice award went jointly to Lauren James and Sian Fisher, pictured above.

Trophies were also presented to many of the children who performnd on the club's Christmas-themed cart last November.

They include best fundraiser Luke Clark, most improved Lacey Hallam, most promising Aisha Lester, best girl Lottie Nicholson, best boy George Lawrence, bst newcomer Thomas Nicholson, best all-rounders Bradley Chave and Jack Britton, and the childrens choice Ryan Morgan.

During the evening, the club also handed over a cheque for £600 to Cancer Research UK, pictured below.

It comes after a successful collection during the club's annual Christmas charity float collection last December, taking the total to £3,766 since 2008.

The club's 2015 float, called It's A Cracker, impressed the judges and spectators along the routes of the parades across Somerset and won second place overall in the juvenile category.

The club has again thanked its key business supporters who are Burnham Waste, Manuflex, AM Bacon Tractor and Machinery, The Print Hive, Morley and Phill Tibbs, The Lighthouse Inn, Highbridge Caravans, Oak Tree Arena, Jim Vernicombe and B&H Car and Vans of Highbridge.
