HIGHBRIDGE and Burnham Carnival will not be first on the winter circuit next year, it has been decided.
Carnival bosses had hoped to move the event to the Friday before the Bridgwater carnival on November 3, the first in the 2012 circuit, to pull in bigger crowds and more fundraising money.
But police concerns about the effects a change would have on Friday afternoon traffic, and an increased risk of crime and disorder scuppered the idea, meaning the carnival will take place on November 12, a Monday.
