New judging class introduced to all Somerset carnivals
A NEW judging class for disabled entries has been introduced to all seven Somerset carnivals.
The idea was introduced by the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnivals Association (SCGFCA), made up of representatives from the 'magnificent seven' carnival towns and the two carnival club organisations.
Malcolm Cattle, SCGFCA president, said: “As our carnivals increase in popularity and become better known across the UK, it is imperative we ensure everybody in our local communities has the same opportunities to take part in our Guy Fawkes celebrations.”
It is open to single entries, pairs or groups with a maximum number of 20. Standard rules and conditions of entry apply, and prize and appearance money is paid to all who take part.
The closing dates for entrants is September 1.
