1:00pm Friday 30th August 2013 in News
VOLUNTEERS at the Burnham RNLI station were given a boost when three senior community leaders visited the base.
Burnham and Highbridge mayor Martin Cox, deputy mayor Pauline Pollard and councillor Paul Young dropped in for a tour of the facility.
Mr Cox, a former operations manager at the base, spoke to the current incumbent Ricky Holmes about the changes in how the site operates.
The mayor said: “I am very impressed with the way the station is kept and all the information about the lifeboats and the tractors.
“It is interesting that the lifeguards are here too now. I wish to give them all the support we can to enable them to carry out the good work they are doing.”
