Guided tour of lighthouse trail for Hillview Carnival Club members

Members of Burnham's Hillview Carnival Club enjoyed a guided tour around the town's mini lighthouses on Sunday (July 6th).

The group started at the lighthouse outside Burnham Police Station, as pictured, before jumping onboard a minibus to visit each of the 33 other structures.

"The tour was arranged as a thank you for all the children, who really enjoyed the tour and the police station lighjhouse was among their favourites," said Paul Plume from HABA (Highbridge and Burnham Artists), who is one of those who has helped to organise the trail.

34 of the 6ft-tall replicas of Burnham's iconic beach lighthouse make up The Lighthouse Trail, which is raising funds for Burnham-based cancer support charity Petal, run in memory of resident Christine Woodberry who died of cancer.

In addition to raising funds, it's hoped the lighthouses will attract extra visitors to the area. The decorated lighthouses are on show in Burnham, Brean, Lympsham, Watchfield and Highbridge. They will be auctioned off in the autumn.

Lighthouse trail guides are available from the tourist information centre on Burnham's seafront and other businesses where the lighthouses are on show.
