Burnham’s Hillview Carnival Club starts annual Christmas charity tour


Burnham-On-Sea’s Hillview Carnival Club has launched its annual festive tour of the area to raise charity funds.

The club’s is holding its three-week tour of Burnham and Highbridge’s streets, towing Father Christmas on a mobile sleigh while collecting funds for Children’s Hospice South West.

In addition to visiting streets around Burnham-On-Sea and Highbridge, the sleigh, accompanied by cheery festive music, will also be heading to local supermarkets and Brent Knoll’s Sanders Garden Centre.

The new-look sleigh was unveiled by the Hillview team in Burnham High Street on Saturday, as pictured here.
