Loss of one of city’s great characters

August 31 2019

WELLS has lost one of its great characters in Martin Coppell, not only ‘Mr Carnival’ himself, but a great man who did so much for all our community events, and above all one of the last few Wellensians who was truly proud of our city.

From myself a fellow Wellensian and from my colleagues in the Showmen’s Guild of Great Britain may we pass on our condolences to the Coppell family.
