A GROUP of youngsters from Highbridge will not be entering a float in the festivities this year.

The town’s young farmers will not be joining the parade round Burnham and Highbridge because of time and finances.

Club spokesman Rob Stone said: “Obviously the young farmers are very disappointed but we are hoping to enter next year so all our time and effort will be going into that.

“Making a float, paying for a generator and getting all the costumes together does add up and taking part in the carnival costs thousands of pounds.”
