Best wishes paid to former Burnham-On-Sea Mayor after accident

Messages of support have this week been made to a former Mayor of Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge who is recovering after a serious accident.

Hilary Rose – who served as Mayor between 1995 and 1998 – was rushed to hospital after suffering a fall in her home in which she broke her hip.

Hilary, who is Chairman of the Unit Management Committee of Burnham Sea Cadets and a former town coucillor, needed an emergency operation and is now recovering.

Burnham's current Mayor, Cllr Michael Clarke, told this week he was shocked to hear the news.

"Everyone at the Town Council passes on our very best wishes to Hilary for a full and speedy recovery," he said.

And Matt Harkness from Bunham Sea Cadets added: "We at Sea Cadets are also shocked by the news. Hilary has been a stalwart supporter of the unit for many years and we hope she makes a speedy recovery."
