Councillor Peter Downing, was to present a cheque for £1,040
to BARB Search & Rescue.
The monies were collected over Cllr Downing's term of office from
various raffles and donations.

because of their dedication and numerous rescues in the Burnham-On-Sea
area, but because of their help to residents in Sedgemoor during
the winter floods of 2013/2014."
BARB Chairman Mark Newman warmly thanked Cllr Downing for his
support of the charity, which operates two rescue hovercrafts
and two inshore rescue boats.
