welcome move of 'ugly'
in Burnham-On-Sea have this week welcomed the move of ten 'ugly'
recycling banks which had been the first thing many visitors saw
when they stepped off coaches.
Chamber Of Trade has been campaigning for over a year to get recycling
skips re-located from the rear of Morrisons supermarket in Pier
Street, where coaches park and drop off visitors, in a bid to
encourage more trippers to the town.
initially agreeing the move last autumn, Somerset Waste Partnership
has this month followed up its promise and re-located the waste
banks to the nearby Lynton Road car park.
news has this week been welcomed by the Chamber of Trade's Louise
Parkin and Sonya Fudge, pictured above, who launched the campaign
in 2009, as reported here.
told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "I'm very pleased about the move.
This is a step in the right direction to helping Burnham's economy
and encouraging more coaches and visitors to return, thereby boosting
trade all year round."
news comes amid growing concern from traders about the number
of trippers who visit out-of-town areas, such as Sanders Garden
World at Brent Knoll, instead of Burnham.
