Burnham Sea Cadets enjoy VIP tour of town's hovercraft station

Burnham's Sea Cadets were given a VIP tour of the town's hovercraft station this week when they met the crew and also got a chance to see the two craft up close.

The group of youngsters and leaders were shown around the Spirit Of Lelaina and Light Of Elizabeth hovercrafts at the town's Marine Rescue Centre.

Roger Flower, Events Organiser at BARB, the charity that oversees the rescue service, explained how the two craft are used in emergencies and also discussed the work that goes on throughout the year to keep them maintained.

The cadets then walked down to the beach to watch the Spirit Of Lelaina being launched during its latest night training session.
