Shapwick youngsters pick up sea safety tips during visit to Burnham

Eighteen youngsters from a local school picked up beach safety advice during a special visit to Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercraft, Coastguard and lifeboat stations on Saturday morning (May 8th).

The group from Shapwick School were given guided tours of the town's three marine rescue services and met crewmembers from each organisation.

The youngsters also presented BARB with a generous donation of £472 following a sponsored walk to Glastonbury earlier in the year.

Teacher Dan Burnett told "A dozen of our pupils who took part in the walk wanted the money to go to a local charity and were pleased to hand over the proceeds to BARB during Saturday's visit."

"Everyone enjoyed the visit and found it very interesting to see the hovercrafts, coastguard equipment and lifeboats up close."
