A total of 100,000 copies of the brochure have been printed and these will be distributed in Tourist Information Centres, inserted into tourist magazines and handed out at tourism exhibitions and shows during the next year.

The brochure is available from Burnham-On-Sea Tourist Information Centre on the town's seafront and is funded by advertisers, who include
