Appeal dance and exhibition to be held in Burnham-On-Sea
special fundraising events are to be held in Burnham-On-Sea to
support the town's Poppy Appeal.
A 'Pop-up Gallery' is to be held on the corner of Pier Street
and The High Street by Larkins to launch the Poppy Appeal on 26th
gallery will showcase Paul Scator's collection of 1940's and 50's
"It's a very evocative collection depicting the products
of the era and makes for an interesting browse," organiser
Gaynor Brown told Burnham-On-Sea.com.
Poppy Dance is also due to take place at The Ritz Social Club
starting at 7pm on Saturday 2nd November.
"The venue is perfect for this 1940 style dance which will
feature a group called 'Hoppin Mad' who will not only perform
the dances but also give some tuition," added Gaynor. "Come
along and have fun stepping back in time whilst contributing to
the British Legion Poppy Appeal collection."
Tickets are priced £10 per person from The Tourist Information
Centre, The Ritz and Bessie's Sweet Shop in Burnham High Street.
Volunteers are still needed, particularly for evening visits
to collect at venues in Brean, Berrow and Burnham. Call Gaynor
