Burnham-On-Sea rescue charity BARB marks its 20th anniversary

A Burnham-On-Sea rescue charity has marked its 20th year and the end of a busy summer with an informal function for current crewmembers and supporters.

BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) held the event at Highbridge's Oaktree Arena on Saturday (November 4th) to thank its volunteers.

During the evening, the charity's President, Neville Jones, recounted how the charity was formed two decades ago and how the BBC's Challenge Anneka programme built its seafront station.

Deputy Mayor Martin Cox thanked the charity on behalf of the town for its work.

A formal function to mark the anniversary is also being planned for former crewmembers and supporters.
