At a recent meeting of the Somerset County Guy Fawkes Carnival Association (S.C.G.F.C.A.) it was decided to ramp up our presence online with a new website and a Facebook page account to supplement our Twitter account @SCGFCA, both are now launched, details below:
The website address is www.somersetcountycarnivals.com and will eventually contain a history of all the county cups, a picture, it’s history and everyone who has been awarded each cup, currently the winners of all cups only range from 2001 to date, but more years will be added. John Owens (county secretary) has been delving into their history and hopefully between us we will have the complete list by year end, we may have to wait for some of the cups to be returned to get the information.
Other information includes dates of meetings, presentation dinners, dates of all carnivals, who judged what and county results.
The online entry form and marshal registration scheme will also be hosted on the site as well as on the Bridgwater website from the 1st July, there is also information for entries and judges.
The Facebook page address is https://www.facebook.com/SCGFCA and can be accessed via our website above.
As well as featuring the latest updates from the county committee, the Facebook page will also contain information and news provided by the eight affiliated county towns and the three gangs and features associations. In addition, all results from the 2017 S.C.G.F.C.A. carnivals will be posted onto this Facebook page and will provide a ‘one stop shop’ for carnivalites looking for the official results of this year’s carnivals.
