In photos: Over £4,000 raised at Burnham-On-Sea Hospital fete

Over £4,000 was raised for the Friends of Burnham-On-Sea Hospital on Bank Holiday Monday (August 30th) when the group held its annual summer fete.

The town's Manor Gardens were full to the brim with throngs of people for an afternoon of entertainment, stalls and fairground games.

Among the many Burnham-On-Sea groups taking part and raising money were the Lions, Rotary Club, WI, BARB, RNLI, Scouts, Moose Lodge and the Royal British Legion.

League Of Friends Chairman Tony Dheal told "It's been a fantastic afternoon - we've seen a huge turnout of people in the bright sunshine and have raised around £4,000 for the hospital. Many thanks go to everyone who supported us today."
