and House of Lords are so relevant to life in the Burnham area.
The forum was lively and interactive, ending with a political
quiz and a question-and-answer session.
Among those present were Richard Mathews from Sedgemoor Community
Partnership, Sue Quatermass from Mendip and Sedgemoor Community
Support, Highbridge councillor Joe Leach, and Alison Hoare from
Age UK Projects.

The forums provide an opportunity for local people to come together
to learn from and support each other, and to hear inspiring speakers.
