flock to Burnham-On-Sea event to see life-sized polar bear
life-sized animatronic polar bear captured the hearts of hundreds
of Burnham-On-Sea residents during a unique visit to the town on
Saturday (December 10th).
Ritz Social Club in Victoria Street hosted a special visit by Bjorn,
a realistic polar bear, organised by the Town Council as part of
its 'Frostival' celebrations.
500 families, friends and 'big kids' visited to see the three shows,
which included educational information about the animals. Santa
Claus was also on hand on Saturday to welcome visitors.
Frostival is an umbrella term to promote the wide variety of acts
and events held from Burnham's Christmas lights switch-on in mid-November
right through to Christmas Day at local churches to draw people
into the town.
Milner-Simonds, pictured below, organised the event during her time
as Town Centre Manager.
