First look at Burnham-On-Sea's new seafront illuminations

Burnham's new seafront illuminationsWalkers along Burnham's seafront had a first look at the town's new illuminations last night.

The colourful blue and white lights are not due to be officially switched on until July 20, but electricians installing them have been testing them out, giving walkers a chance to catch an early glimpse of them.

Visitors to Burnham-On-Sea.com's Webcam will be able to watch the official switch-on live at 8.30pm on July 20th.

A total of 27 lights will be switched on between the Reed's Arms and St Andrew's Church.

And a further 15 lights between the town's jetty and Yacht Club will be switched on at a later date.

A "very well-known Somerset character who is no stranger to camera flash bulbs" is due to turn on the lights on July 20th, according to Cllr Neville Jones who is organising the event.

Cllr Jones confirmed that the lights will be in place until after Christmas and that they will be illuminated each night at dusk until approximately 12 midnight.
