Hovercraft team takes part in 2004 Burnham-On-Sea Carnival

Burnham-On-Sea's hovercraft team got a great reception when they took part in this year's hugely popular winter carnival.

The hovercraft was among more than 100 carnival floats and emergency vehicles on show on Monday Novemebr 8th. It was towed along the three mile route by the group's 4x4 rescue vehicle near to the front of the parade and many of the crew members took part.

These photographs, taken in the centre of the town, show the hovercraft moving forward in the procession, escorted by hovercraft team member Chris Barker.

A BARB spokesman said: "It was a superb opportunity to show off the hovercraft to the town. We got a great reception from the large crowds all along the route - it's been a fantastic evening."
