Schools set to decorate Burnham's streets with flags this summer

Burnham-On-Sea & Highbridge Town Council has this week launched a new school flag project that aims to add extra colour to the High Street.

This council hopes to work with four local schools to design a range of flags to be displayed in the town centre in Burnham.

The initiative aims to engage with a wide age-range of children and is part of the Tesco S106 work and promoted by the council's Town Projects Committee.

Education coordinator for the project, Juliet Farnese, pictured right unveiling her town centre 'you are here boards' in Burnham last year, said the challenge will be to co-ordinate the design of 30 new flags for the town centre.

She told "The designs must work together and add to the desire for a bright, welcoming atmosphere that celebrates the arts."

"It is great to be working with so many young people on this project, I hope that they enjoy seeing their collaborations on display during August."

"I have really enjoyed working with the Town Council on a number of design projects over the last year and this one brings them all together."

Pupils at St Andrew's, Churchfield, Burnham Infants and St Joseph's will be invited to join in school 8 workshops with Juliet.

Their work will then be developed into the final designs that will be printed and displayed during August.

A trail guide to the flags will be published and it's hoped more businesses will participate in future years.
