Annual Burnham-On-Sea shop window competition to be held in April

Burnham-On-Sea Chamber of Trade will hold its annual 'Spot the Odd Item in the Shop Window Competition' next month.

The contest will be held at shops across the town between Saturday April 4th and Saturday April 18th and the 'odd items' will be goods that are not normally sold by the businesses taking part.

Entrants will be encouraged to find as many items as possible in the windows, with a recession-busting £100 cash and runners-up prizes of shopping vouchers up for grabs.

Entry forms will be available at the start of April from local schools, participating shops, the Tourist Information Centre and via the Chamber of Trade's official web page here on

Alex Turco, Chairman, told "Any business wishing to display an odd item should contact me as soon as possible and in any event no later than Saturday March 21st to reserve their place on 01278 788646 or by email."

"The competition is an excellent way to raise awareness of your business, which is more important than usual during this recession, since it makes potential customers visit your premises and look into shop windows. Any Burnham-On-Sea town centre business can take part."
