Memorial Shield

Bridgwater Carnival Memorial Shield

Inscribed: – To the affectionate memory of those whose lives were devoted to Bridgwater Guy Fawkes Carnival. This Memorial Shield is most respectfully dedicated.

In the mid 1980’s the Carnival Committee decided that there were adequate carnival cup awards. It was agreed to have a Memorial Shield, donations instead of cups would help with the costly upkeep of the present cups.

Silver plaques on the shield are in memory of the following Carnivalites.
