Burnham-On-Sea street party raises over £1,000 for carnival club

More than £1,000 was raised for a local carnival club during a Burnham-On-Sea pub's Bank Holiday weekend street party on Sunday (May 25th).

Despite grey skies, the event outside the Somerset and Dorset drew large crowds of revellers to the southern end of the High Street where music from a range of acts boomed out across the town.

The High Street was closed for the evening to allow a huge lorry to move into position and act as the stage.

The six-hour event also included a barbecue, raffle, stalls and tombola in aid of Hillview Carnival Club.

John Quinnell, landlord of the S&D, told "The event was a great success. Despite thunder storms all around us, we were lucky not to have a drop of rain all evening."

"I think we'll have raised over £1,000 on the night, but we won't know the final figure for a couple of days."
