security boost for Burnham-On-Sea's Manor Gardens
in Burnham-On-Sea's Manor Gardens is set to be boosted this summer,
thanks to £5,000 of council funding.
brand new infra-red CCTV camera is to be installed after Burnham
and Highbridge Town Council gave £3,000 of grant funding
and Somerset County Council handed over £2,000 of cash towards
the project on Monday evening (April 6th).
Gill Bawler, who is pictured receiving the cheques from Bunham
Mayor Peter Burridge-Clayton and county councillors Rose Parsons
and Mike Facey, said: "Anti-social behaviour in the gardens
has been an ongoing issue for many years."
this new camera we'll be able to identify more youths to combat
the problems. The infra-red features will also mean it can be
used at night to identify people."
