INFORMATION CENTRE, BURNHAM-ON-SEA
BIARS (Burnham Information And Rescue Support) is the organisation formed to run the Tourist Information Centre in Burnham-On-Sea, Somerset.
BIARS is operated entirely by volunteers, who are selling charity merchandise from BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) and The Coastguard Association, handing out sea safety advice from the two groups, and also providing tourist information to visitors and residents.
As well as a valuable source of local information and events the Information Centre is a place where you can book tickets for local theatres, coaches and attractions. There is now a wide a range of gifts available to buy - choose from local photographs, greetings cards, books, Bristol Blue glass, souvenirs and handmade crafts.
BIARS is seeking official charitable status and an application is being submitted to the Charity Commission.
