Four-legged supporters of Burnham hovercraft!

Claire Miller with the two canine hovercraft supportersAmong the crowds who turned out to support the Burnham-On-Sea hovercraft at last weekend's emergency services promotion day were these pair of four-legged supporters!

The dogs were clearly dressed to impress with their very own tailor-made hovercraft uniforms.

Made of bright orange material just like the jackets of the human crew members, the clothing was even embossed with the BARB name!

Owned by BARB Hovercraft Chairman Alan and his wife, Claire (pictured), the dogs clearly have the Burnham hovercraft close to their heart.

The dogs' jackets was embossed with the BARB nameThey were on show at ESCAPE, the Emergency Services Community Awareness and Promotion Event, where the public were given an opportunity to see BARB's rescue hovercraft, the RNLI's lifeboats, Coastguard vehicles, Avon and Somerset Constabulary police cars and the county's ambulances.

The event was held on Burnham's seafront on August 21 and attracted large crowds who poured hundreds of pounds of much-needed funds into the organisations' collection tins.
