Helping the Community of Somerset

At C&D South West we believe that local business can help communities by providing support and resources that they may need and at C&D South West this means giving back to the Chard and Somerset community. Below are just a few examples of how we get involved.


At C&D South West, as a family businesss we have always believed that it’s important that we give to the local community where we can. We pride ourselves on being part of the community and support and thank all people and families that also support our communities.

Somerset Carnivals

Carnivals are a great spectacle in Somerset’s annual calendar and each float requires a hitch and transportation through the streets of Somerset’s towns, and that’s what we provide to many of the local annual carnival routes.


The carnival is now in its 49th year and has raised over £100,000 for local charities and organisations, including Chard Christmas Lights, Children’s Hospice South West, Chard Hospital and all the local schools. This activity enables us to support the work of Chard Carnival Club and local people who also volunteer their time.

Local Music Mobile Stage Truck

You’ll be amazed on much this supports a range of activities in the Chard and Somerset area and we would like to say a big thank you to all helpers, drivers and volunteers for helping C&D South West support the community in this way.
