About Oasis Carnival...
We are a Carnival Club that builds an entry to take part in carnivals in Somerset and some surrounding counties. It consist of a large illuminated entry depicting the chosen theme of the year.
To achieve this we require members with a vast range of skills and abilities from carpentry to administration. Most is learnt whilst a member of the club, to this aim we welcome anyone who has the desire to learn and work with us.
One aspect of the club is that it gives the opportunity to learn or pass on skills to some of which are not apparent at first sight, i.e. vehicle maintenance, administration, legal aspect (insurance, police and traffic laws) painting, dress making, design and many more to numerous to list here
The benefits the club gives back to the community are great in that it gives young and old to meet and understand each others outlook also the chance to learn new skills which can be transferred to work home and social life
Modern times are making life more intense for carnival Clubs like ourselves and the need for new members is more intense as is the need to raise fund to keep the club running, laws have changed dramatically in the last 2 or 3 decades and has increased running cost 10 to 15 fold so to this end we need to increase our membership and funding for us to survive
