Burnham-On-Sea's Mayor welcomes visitors from twin German town

A group of Germans from Burnham-On-Sea's twin town of Fritzlar have visited the area this week.

The group of 30 people arrived on Saturday, and were treated to a civic reception by Burnham's Mayor, Cllr Ken Smout, in the Town Council Chambers in Jaycroft Road.

He told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was great to see group being treated like returning family members by their Burnham host families - they were given a very warm welcome."

The group makes exchange visits to the town on a regular basis and strong friendships have been developed with the host families over many years.
