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.
