The WCC Team

Here are the people who work long and hard to ensure that West Country Carnivals stays fresh and updated:

Nath Fernandes - Site Owner, Designer and Filming

I have always been passionate about carnival even from a young age. Every winter, I used to get excited about the prospect of carnival coming to town only to find out that it was going to rain on that day! My ambition was to try and get involved in these spectacles, however due to the nature of my disability, I knew that this wasn't going to be easy.

In 2005, I released my first website named 'RCOOL' and it was from then on that I realised that this provided a gateway for me to achieve my ambition. Since then I have travelled the West attending many carnivals and had the opportunity to meet new people. Also, aside from carnival, I have founded 'VEU Design' providing websites and multimedia services (Filming and Photography) for people with the help of our team, in addition to providing Disability Awareness Workshops and Mentoring services under the trading name of 'VEUcan'. These would not be possible without some members of the WCC Team and the occasional WCC Photographer, so really, thanks guys!!!

Since 2005 I have been interested in carnival and wanting to be involved with it.  The way a cart is built and effects that carts can give off with the different themes and what can be achieved on an engineering level.  A relative’s friend kindly takes me out to see Marketeers C.C cart throughout the year to see the cart being built and the enormous amount of work that goes into building a cart every year is staggering.

Every year I go to watch various carnivals around the Somerset circuit and would like to thank my mother and father for putting up with my carnival DVD’s and for taking me to watch these spectacular parades as you have to be there in person to really experience the thrill of carnival.

In 2008, I was kindly welcomed onto the team of WCC by Nath Fernandes and will be supplying photos from various carnivals for everyone to enjoy.

A special thanks to Nick, Bev, Paul and Alison for driving us to and from carnivals! Also, Naths PAsJohn (2010), Martin (2012), Amy, Ben, Eamonn and Gill for photography!
