Busy summer of activities for Burnham Dreamscheme comes to end

Youngsters from Burnham-On-Sea's Dreamscheme have ended their busy summer of community activities with a well-deserved trip to a fun park.

The 42 members of Burnham Dreamscheme ended their hectic month of community activities with a day trip to Crealy Adventure Park.

Leader John Alexander told "Everyone - including the volunteers - got wet and not just because it rained! No-one got hurt or lost and everyone behaved themselves - in fact, they were a credit to us all!"

"I want to thank everyone for coming to Dreamscheme over the summer and making it such a success. A massive thank you also goes to all the volunteers because without their help none of this would have happened."

Among the group's final activities for this summer were 36 members designing, painting and mounting a tile collage with a seaside theme on the wall of the Burnham Area Youth centre.

"The tiles were painted to an excellent standard but the winners on the day were Ella and Chelsea, so a big well done goes to them. Joe S, Joe C and Charlotte G all received their bronze awards," added John.

Earlier in August, the youngsters carried out two fundraising bag packing sessions at Asda in Highbridge.

The funds were collected to help teenage water skier Toby Duggan meet some of the costs of his trip to the World Championships in Australia - as featured here. They raised a huge £800 over the course of the two days.
