Christmas lights switch on 2022

Members of the Chard Carnival committee met on a very wet evening to marshal the road closures for the Christmas lights switch on at the Guildhall in Chard.  The road closures came in just after 5.30pm.

6.15pm - A little trip in to town

People were starting to arrive 

Jason kindly was making hot drinks for the members manning the road closures

6.30pm - The Santa Float arrived

Just before 7pm The Big man was ready to go!

Found the Mini town crier and the mace bearer by the pub!

The majorettes were on the go

At 7.55 the roads were re-opened

The committee members met back at the Guildhall looking rather wet!

And the last picture as always has to go to Zoe! 

The Carnival Committee is doing their bit to ensure the future of Chard Carnival.
