VOLUNTEERS who helped with the flood relief effort were thanked with a party at the weekend.

Around 140 people packed into Burrowbridge Coronation Hall on Saturday (May 3) evening for the ‘Up Periscope’ party, organised to honour those who helped the community during the devastating winter floods.

The evening was organised by Coronation Hall trustees and was made possible by generous donations from residents of the village and the support of businesses.

The hall was decorated in a nautical theme, fully resplendent with yellow submarine and a deep sea diver.

Party-goers were also encouraged to wear fitting fancy dress.
