baked beans over her!

Bank Holiday Monday Fete.
town's Manor Gardens were crowded with throngs of people for an
afternoon of entertainment, stalls and fairground games, which
raised over £4,000 for the Friends of Burnham-On-Sea Hospital.
the many Burnham-On-Sea groups taking part and raising money were
the Lions, Rotary Club, WI, Moose Lodge, local churches, BARB,
RNLI, Folkfest and the Royal British Legion.
Of Friends Chairman Tony Deahl told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It's
been another great afternoon - we've seen a big turnout of people
and have raised around £4,000 for the hospital. Many thanks
go to everyone who supported us today."
