A NEW website has been launched with a calendar promoting events across Burnham and Highbridge.

It has been set up by Burnham Information and Rescue Support (BiARS), which took over running the Tourist Information Centre from Sedgemoor District Council.

The website features accommodation and attraction listings, plus an events calendar for Burnham, Highbridge and the surrounding villages.

The calendar also includes events organised by BiARS, such as themed weekends – as first reported by the Weekly News here.

Ian Jefferies, BiARS business and tourism manager, said: “Our aim with the website and events is to make Burnham and the villages a more attractive holiday destination and to make it a more enjoyable place to live.

“We are working with other organisations such as the town team, chamber of trade, town and district councils and accommodation and attraction providers to improve what our area has to offer.

“It is hoped anyone planning an event will look at this calendar to avoid clashing with similar activities and send the details, when confirmed, to BiARS for inclusion in the listings.”
