Over 30 shops and businesses across Burnham-On-Sea are displaying cryptic clues in their windows as part of a treasure hunt contest organised by the town’s Chamber of Trade to coincide with the summer holidays.

Each clue has a holiday theme and the public is invited to see if they can follow the trail around the town centre and be in with a chance of winning £50 cash or one of two £25 runners-up prizes.

The fun, free-to-enter competition begins at the tourist information centre on The Esplanade, which is the first location to head to.

Entry forms are available the town’s seafront tourist information centre and online to download here and from participating businesses.

The contest has been launched by Burnham Chamber of Trade, alongside local traders, and it runs until September 7th.

A Burnham Chamber of Trade spokesman said: “Burnham has a great range of shops and a large variety of goods on sale – and this competition encourages people into our town centre to explore them.”

“We hope the treasure hunt will attract more people into Burnham over the whole of the holidays and the winner will be announced in September.”
