In photos: 50 residents join in Burnham-On-Sea's Community Games

Residents of Burnham-On-Sea's Marlborough Court, Gardenhurst and The Grove held a mass celebration for The Olympics by hosting their own Community Games last week.

Over 50 local residents joined forces as teams to compete in games that were a twist on the traditional Olympic games.

The modern tentathlon, wrong jump and water holo were all enjoyed!

The final scores were very tight with only one point between gold and silver placings with the team called 'The Incredibles' just pipping 'My Name is Rio' to the top spot.

Organiser Bev Milner Simonds, from the team 'My Name is Rio', thanked the Town Council, Segemoor Council, Mayor and Community Games for their support.

"Bringing people together to take part in some competitive sport, make new friends and use the street as a giant playground was such fun!"

"The three streets pride themsleves on their community spirit and the 'summer of sport' was an obvious opportunity for us to come together and celebrate. Thank you to all the teams and those who helped put on such a great event."
