Burnham-On-Sea Pier celebrates start of British Tourism Week

Burnham-On-Sea's pier joined in a nationwide celebration to mark the start of British Tourism Week on Sunday (March 13th).

The event, called Party On The Pier, included morris dancing and entertainment plus visits from several local VIPs.

Burnham's Mayor and Mayoress, Michael and Maria Clarke, joined Sedgemoor District Council's Chairman, Jane Moreton, and husband Ian in enjoying traditional seaside fish and chips at The Pavilion.

Over 30 seaside piers across the UK joined in the event during the weekend.

The Pavilion's Managing Director, Louise Parkin, pictured, told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was great for Burnham's Pier to be a part of this special day. We wanted to do our bit in promoting Britain - and Burnham - as a tourist destination."
