300 people headed to Burnham-On-Sea's Marine Cove gardens on Monday
(2nd May) to watch a traditional May Day celebration.
sound of the Chalice Morris Men began the event in the seafront
gardens, followed by traditional country dancing by the children
from St Josephs School and a display by members of Lisa

To celebrate May Day there were also free craft activities for
children, including willow weaving, flower making and plant pot
decorating, plus a fairy hunt and hook a duck.
Jacqui Strong told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "It was our best turnout
to date for one of these May Day events."
"There was a really nice family atmosphere and the children
all did superbly well and we managed to just beat the wet weather."
Green Flag award-winning Marine Cove on The Esplanade is run by
Sedgemoor District Council and plays host to many free activities
throughout the year.
