Hundreds of people flocked to Burnham-On-Sea’s seafront hovercraft station at the weekend to meet a VIP visitor – Santa Claus.

More than 500 people visited the popular two-day Christmas event at BARB, which featured a grotto for Father Christmas and stalls.

BARB Operations Manager Mike Lowe said: “Many thanks go to all those who attended this well-supported annual event and to BARB’s volunteer crew for giving up their time.”

“Santa and BARB have received lots of very positive feedback following the weekend and we wish everyone a very happy and safe Christmas.”
