Ramblers Carnival Club was formed in a moment of madness in 1961 by a band of 10 members. (Namely, Mike Hancock, Terry Milton, Roy Turner, Dave Bennet, Dave Baker, Jessy Howes, Pete Edmonds, Plum Pardoe, Brian Sweeting and Dave Adamson). This membership soon grew and membership now stands at around 40. The club was initially based at the Duke of Monmouth but now has its Headquarters firmly established at the Bunch of Grapes in St John Street. The Ramblers have developed a reputation for being somewhat eccentric if not a little mischievous. Many people would argue that this is the driving force which has maintained the strength of the club over the years through the good and bad times. The spectacular and mesmerising past entries, both on the stage and on the road, justifiably demonstrates the success the club has enjoyed over the years.
The club hold weekly meetings at the Bunch of Grapes Pub in St John Street, Bridgwater at 8pm on Thursday evenings. Anyone interested in joining or lending support is welcome to attend.
