Support local trade by shopping in Burnham this Xmas, residents urged

Burnham-On-Sea residents have this week been urged to support local traders by shopping in the town this Christmas.

The Chamber of Trade and Town Team are encouraging shoppers to use the town's High Street over the festive season.

Mayor Ken Smout has given his backing to the campaign, telling "I'm very keen to see local people supporting Burnham's town centre by doing their festive shopping in the town. Our shops offer a great range of products and need support in these difficult economic times."

A Chamber of Trade spokesman added: "Burnham has a great range of independent shops selling a variety of gifts, from clothes, food and artwork to electrical products, flowers and children's toys."

"Why spend money travelling to malls this Christmas when festive shopping can be done here on your doorstep, helping Burnham's economy at the same time."

Many shops in Burnham will be staying open until 6.30pm after the Christmas lights switch-on next Saturday, November 24th, as the festive shopping period gets into full swing.

The Christmas lights themselves will be switched on at 4.45pm following an afternoon of festive music entertainment outside the Somerset and Dorset pub in Burnham High Street starting at 3pm.
