Burnham-On-Sea residents among 15,000 spectators at Olympic event

Four Burnham-On-Sea were among the 15,000 strong audience at a beach volleyball game in London this week.

Bev and Sarah Milner Simonds joined fellow Burnham residents Jon and Julia Walters at the beach volleyball at Horse Guards Parade on Sunday night.

And to bring something a bit different to the traditional flags being flown, they took along Burnham-On-Sea Town Team flags with them!

Bev, pictured, told "We were really lucky to get tickets in the final waves of ticket release as seating plans were finalised."

"The quarter final matches were amazing - the atmosphere, the noise, the athleticism and the tension were superb."

"The second match between Germany and Brazil was thrilling and I was regularly leaping up, and waving the Burnham flag to spur them on!"

Sarah added: "The games were such fun! I had never seen beach volleyball before but we definitely need to bring it back Burnham - all you need is sand and we sure have a lot of that!"
