100 take part in traditional Easter race to top of Brent Knoll

Dozens of youngsters took part in the annual Easter run to the top of Brent Knoll on Saturday morning (March 28th).

The annual race is held from outside the village's primary school and this year's event saw almost 100 children and parents making their way to the summit of the Knoll and back.

Becky Boston, chairman of the school's PTA, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "They each collect a numbered lolly stick at the top of the Knoll and then return to the school where they claim an Easter egg."

This year's run was won by Beck Bishop and Paris Hazelton-Cavill (pictured), with Rebecca Thomas in third.

The event coincided with the school's Easter fayre, when a number of stalls and attractions were set up in the playground. There was also a visit by a Burnham fire engine and Burnham's Light of Elizabeth rescue hovercraft.
