On 29th July 2006, the tramway club took
part in the Bexhill Carnival with the club
mini tram as we did last year in the
Hastings Carnival. The club’s mini tram,
no 10 was on its especially decorated
trailer kindly towed by Alan Humphrey
in his car. At around 11am the Judges
came round to find winners in each group.
We were amazed to find out that our float
won 3rd place in the judging of our group
which was Charities, Clubs and
Organizations! We set off at about 1.00pm
for the 4 mile trip. The procession started
in Turkey Road and then set off heading
into Sidley then into Bexhill, onto the
seafront, along the seafront to the finish
at the Polegrove where a variety of stalls
and entertainment was on offer. The
Carnival took about 4 hours to complete,
with the club helping to collect money
 in two nets. It was a really great and
fun day! Thanks to Roy, Derek, Alan,
Mary and Oliver for taking part.
