A CARNIVAL club based in Ilminster which was on the brink of folding last year has found a new lease of life. 

Rascals CC secretary Lucy Mabey said: "We have recently had our design meeting which was a great success, we have got some really great ideas for this year now.

"However, to get the most impact for the ideas, we have been talking about going into a different category for this year's entry IF we can get enough adults who want to become members and go on the float.

"Our next meeting is at 7.30pm on Monday, February 3 at the Shrubbery Hotel in Ilminster.

"As we are so keen to start building the float we really need to have anyone interested to come along to the meeting."
