Burnham's Marine Cove group receives Britain In Bloom award

Burnham-On-Sea's Friends of Marine Cove have celebrating after winning a top accolade at the Britain In Bloom awards.

The seafront gardens were judged to be "outstanding" for a second year running and the group received a Neighbourhood Award for their work.

The Cove was also given a Green Flag award earlier in the year.

The award was presented by Ann Swithenbank and collected by Friends Treasurer Phoebe Harling, Burnham and Highbridge Mayor Ken Smout and Community Gardener Jacqui Strong, as pictured.

"We really pleased to have received the level of outstanding for a second year - the volunteers do so much in the garden and have been so supportive during the last year – it makes it all worthwhile," Jaqui told

Anyone who is interested in volunteering in the garden can contact Mrs Strong for details on 01278 436420.
