Edithmead Church Burnham-On-Sea

Edithmead Church celebrated its 100th anniversary over the weekend with a special flower festival.

The tiny tin church on the outskirts of Burnham is a well-known landmark and visitors were able to take a look inside and also view the wide range of colourful floral displays.

One of the organisers, Maureen Phillips, said: “We had a great turnout of visitors thanks to Burnham-On-Sea.com’s publicity of our centenary.”

“Many people visited after seeing it on the website and saying they had always wanted to see inside, having driven past so many times!”

This year is a special celebration for the church as it’s 100 years since the little church was brought to Edithmead from its humble beginnings as an Adult School in East Brent.

Visitors were also able to see the church’s new windows, which have been installed after a grant funding boost from environmental group Viridor.

Maureen added: “Viridor Credits gave us £5,300 for the wooden windows to be replaced.  The windows were really at the end of their life and water was getting into the walls which are also wooden.”

“We had to meet the requirements for the grant and luckily for us they thought it was a worthwhile project. A local builder, Pat Hancock, has built the windows and installed them for us.”
