rescue services day, but the summer as a whole has been disappointing
due to the poor weather."
Christine Lewis at seafront gift shop Treasure Chest added: "The
super weather over the last few days created a great weekend of
trade after a so-so season overall."
for Burnham Chamber of Trade said: "It was great to see the
town busy with visitors, bringing a late season boost for some businesses
during the last weekend of the school holidays. Some are telling
us that the changeable weather over the summer means it's not been
a fully positive summer for all."
Jefferies, manager at Burnham's tourist information centre, added:
"When the sun comes out, the visitors come too and while promoting
our town to visitors is important, it's the weather that really
brings out people. It's been a good end to the season after a difficult
summer for some."
