Pirates ahoy! Fun day on Burnham-On-Sea beach hailed a success

A pirate-themed family fun day, held on Burnham-On-Sea beach on Sunday (August 12th), has been hailed a success by organisers after attracting hundreds of youngsters.

The free family event was held over the course of five hours on the sands next to The Pavilion, where entertainment included a fancy dress competition, pirate-themed games, fun workshops, face painting, giant bubble making and the Mudlarks community choir.

"We had a great day with a good turnout and plenty of support from local people. It went so well that I'd like to make this an annual event," one of the organisers, Ian Jefferies, told

Among the visitors taking part in the day were MP Tessa Munt, who tried her hand at giant bubble making, and Burnham County Councillor Peter Burridge-Clayton, pictured above, who came dressed for the part.
