For one year, prior to the formation of The Sydenham Carnival Club, a certain person decided to enter Bridgwater Carnival as a Juvenile Feature, with an idea entitled "Emergency Ward 10". This particular theme is now down in the record books as being entered by R. J. Stoodley & Co. At the same time another Juvenile Feature was being entered by an M. Dando & Co. with an idea entitled "Dartmoor's Annual Outing". The result being that the limited number of carnivals entered by these juveniles resulted each time in a first place for M. Dando & Co. and second place for R. Stoodley & Co. Some of the members Taken part in those particular ideas were S. GREEN, R. BURROWS, R. STOODLEY, L. CARTER B. NICHOSON, R. ANTHONY, M. DANDO, J. PARKES, R. TURNER, J. THOMAS and T. HOOPER. From here it was decided that possibly a Carnival Club could be born if only these young fellows got their heads together with the same aim in mind so that they could challenge the "Big Guns" of that time in the "Local Features" section. It was not long after this that a mere possibility became reality. After discussions with officials of the Sydenham Youth Center, a club would be formed.
