Burnham's Deputy Mayor and Mayoress visit first of BARB open days

Burnham-On-Sea's Deputy Mayor and Mayoress were among the visitors to a new series of summer open days being held at the town's rescue hovercraft charity BARB.

Danny Titcombe and his partner Jo Hughes met crewmembers and also climbed onboard the life-saving Spirit Of Lelaina hovercraft, pictured.

It comes as BARB holds a series of open days at its hovercraft station on the South Esplanade during July and August.

"Each Sunday over the holiday period, BARB's crewmembers will be handing out beach safety leaflets and be available to discuss seaside safety," said BARB Chairman Mark Newman.

"There will also be an opportunity for visitors to see Burnham's two rescue hovercrafts and support the charity's work by buying BARB-branded merchandise, such as pens, mugs, keyrings and toy bears."
