Burnham-On-Sea busker Taylor Topham entertained customers queuing outside Brent Knoll’s newly-opened village shop on Friday (April 23rd) after it issued an appeal for buskers earlier this week.
Brent Knoll’s ’emergency shop’ was officially opened last Saturday (18th April) by local MP James Heappey using a video link from his home in Axbridge.
The organisers of the shop issued an appeal on Burnham-On-Sea.com for buskers to come forward – and talented singer musician Taylor Topham got in touch.
He entertained customers queuing outside in the sunshine while socially distancing.
David Sturgess, a member of the steering group behind the Emergency Shop, told Burnham-On-Sea.com Taylor’s performances had been greatly appreciated and he said BBC Somerset also attended to record him singing.
Brent Knoll’s Emergency Shop is open every day, except Wednesday and Sunday, between 9 and 11 am, run by a team of volunteers.
They are stocking the shop with all the essentials, like bread, flour, eggs, milk, vegetables, etc – and taking orders for newspapers.
