Mayor officially opens Burnham-On-Sea's refurbished Yacht Club

Burnham-On-Sea Yacht Club

Burnham-On-Sea's newly refurbished Yacht Club will be officially opened by the town's mayor this weekend.

Tony Winterburn, Burnham-On-Sea Yacht Club PresidentThe club's building at the southern end of The Esplanade has had £49,000 of improvements made to it during the last few months.

Yacht Club President Tony Winterburn (pictured) told Burnham-On-Sea.com: "The old building had been untouched for 30 years and was definitely showing its age."

"So we knocked down the front of the building, extended the sides, and added a new conservatory frontage. New kitchen and bar areas have also been added - and the work has increased the building's overall size by a third."

The building will be officially opened on Sunday June 19 by Burnham-On-Sea Mayor Eric Gill in front of an audience of invited guests including club members, local councillors, and representatives from the RNLI, Coastguard and BARB hovercraft.

It will be followed by the club's annual Queen's Cup yachting competition in Bridgwater Bay where more than 12 yachts will battle it out.

Funding for the building's refurbishment has come from club funds, donations by the club's 140 members, and a £3,500 grant from the district council.
