Burnham-On-Sea's BAY Centre to celebrate its 50th anniversary in May

Burnham-On-Sea's youth centre is set to celebrate the 50th anniversary of its building next month.

The Burnham Area Youth (BAY) Centre Annual General Meeting will mark the special milestone on Wednesday 11th May, starting at 7.30pm, in the centre's main hall.

To mark the occasion there will be a display of BAY Centre memorabilia in the training room with photos and documents on show.

The centre will also be open to visitors during the day, and there will be an opportunity to browse and look back at the building's history.

"If anyone has any memorabilia and photo’s that they could lend or give us, we would greatly appreciate the chance to display them. There will also be a memories book for visitors to record their thoughts," the centre's Chairman Mike Lang told

"At the AGM, we have requested past youth worker Ken Hindle to chair the meeting since Ken was the youth worker who started the building in the first place."

"We are hopeful also that our Honorary President Neville Jones will be able to open the meeting and introduce Ken."

"Those attending the AGM will hear how the BAY Centre is managing to survive during these tough financial times, supporting all the community groups and clubs using the building, and also hear the proposed initiatives and improvements."

"Additionally, there will be reports from the various BAY centre’s clubs. The conclusion of the meeting will be marked by wine, cheese and nibbles in the BAY Centre cafe, along with the opportunity to inspect the building."

"To pass over documents, photos or memorabilia contact BAY Centre Chair Mike Lang on 07889 815860 or drop items into the centre at one of the regular Friday computer classes in the training wing."
