Public meeting on Burnham-On-Sea tourist centre plans tonight

Volunteers who want to help run Burnham-On-Sea's tourist information centre when it comes under the management of a new charitable group later this Spring are being invited to an open meeting in the town this evening (Thursday, February 10th).

The newly-formed group BIARS (Burnham Information And Rescue Support) is holding the event for local people to register their interest in helping the seafront centre.

The public meeting will be held at 7pm in the Town Council Chambers in Jaycroft Road and all potential volunteers are being encouraged to attend.

Cllr Neville Jones, Chairman of BIARS, told "We look forward to meeting the volunteers who want to be a part of the Tourist Information Centre's exciting future."

The seafront centre was plunged into jeopardy in 2009 when the cash-strapped district council announced it could no longer afford to run it, but BIARS stepped forward to save it and now intends to turn the centre's fortunes around and make it profitable again.
