Marina Sydenham Juvenile Carnival Club (Associate)

Marina Sydenham Juvenile Carnival Club

Bridgwater based Marina Sydenham Juvenile Carnival Club (JCC), was founded in 1966 as Marina Row Carnival Club by Roy Pearce and his son Kevin. The carnival club taking its name from the road where most of the members lived in the town. The club started with just a small trailer and go-cart entry, and won it’s first prize in 1971 after being placed 3rd with an entry entitled Chichester Returns.

The club continued to go from strength to strength, and in the early 1980s merged with Sydenham JCC to become Marina Sydenham Juvenile Carnival Club, and moved it’s base to the Sydenham Centre in the town.  After varying fortunes, the club then moved to a permanent purpose built shed on the Bristol Road carnival site. Since this move, the club has enjoyed considerable success, managing to win the Juvenile County Cup on numerous occasions.

Marina Sydenham JCC is one of only a few remaining juvenile carnivals clubs in Somerset. The club prides itself on giving children the chance to not only participate in carnival, but also learn new skills that they can take into their future careers, such as electronics, electrical skills, engineering, painting and carpentry.

The club are always looking for new members, and can be contacted by email at msjcc@outlook.com, or on social media via the club’s Facebook page.
