King and Queen appointed during May Day celebration in Burnham!

A traditional May Day celebration took place today in Burnham-On-Sea this afternoon (Monday).

The event was scheduled to be held in the town's Marine Cove gardens but was moved to the Bay Centre in Cassis Close due to the threat of wet weather.

The May Day Celebration saw the crowning of a Marine Cove King and Queen - Michael Oliver and Chloe Orledge - by Burnham and Highbridge Carnival Queen Jenny Yip along with entertainment from local groups.

"St Joseph's School May Pole dancers put on a great display, with traditional floral hoops and garlands, and there was also a demonstration by Berrow's Fei Lung Kwan martial arts group," organiser Jacqui Strong told Burnham-On-Sea.com. "It was a great afternoon despite the re-location because of the weather."

A living statue was set-up in the centre for the afternoon
