Burnham Dreamscheme receives £500 boost on its first birthday

Members of Burnham-On-Sea Dreamscheme celebrated the group's first anniversary on Wednesday (February 15th) with a busy day of fun activities.

The group's 100 members gathered for a birthday party and its annual general meeting at the town's BAY Centre in Cassis Close, where Burnham Lions generously handed over a £500 cheque to help the group's work.

"It's been a busy first year during which time we've quickly grown from 46 members last February to over 100 registered members now," leader John Alexander told

"We have great plans for 2012, including a soon-to-be-announced community garden and a production of 'Pinafore Pirates', which will be a junior version of the Pirates Of Penzance, plus a massive fun day at Easter."

On Wednesday, the group also held its annual general meeting where certificates were awarded to the best volunteers and the group looked back at a busy year.

The group will be enjoying a bowling session today (Thursday) as a thank you for their help over the past year.
