Bumper Bank Holiday enjoyed by Burnham-On-Sea traders


Tourism businesses in Burnham-On-Sea have enjoyed a bumper Bank Holiday weekend as sunny weather attracted crowds of visitors.

Newly-opened ice cream parlour Flavours on The Esplanade was among the firms which benefited, according to owner Nigel Burrow (pictured).

He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's been a great first week of trade for us. There's been lots of demand for our award-winning, locally-made ice cream. The great weather has certainly helped."

And one of Burnham's holiday traditions, the beach donkeys, were also kept busy. Owner Debbie Banwell told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The beach has been busier than normal for the time of the year and our donkeys have proved popular."

Friday's Royal Wedding celebrations in Burnham - covered here - also helped to further boost trade in the town.
