DONKEY and pony rides, inflatables, ice cream - they are all bastions of a day out at the seaside.

And people are being invited to put themselves forward to run such attractions on beaches and parks in Somerset.

To make visitors' and residents' trips to the Sedgemoor’s beaches and Apex Park even more enjoyable, Sedgemoor District Council arranges for various businesses to trade on or near the beach or park.

Now, Sedgemoor District Council is in the process of inviting offers for a range of beach and other concessions in the Burnham-on-Sea, Highbridge and Berrow areas for the next three seasons.

At Berrow Beach the following concessions are available: Refreshments, children’s inflatables, beach requisites, deckchair hire and ice creams.

At Apex Park, the following concessions are available: Ice creams and refreshments and food.

Anyone interested in concessions, including the refreshment concessions in Apex Park; Berrow Beach or Marine Cove or Ice Creams at Apex Park; Burnham-on-Sea or Berrow Beaches, should contact Finance and Property Services on 0300 303 7800 or email

The closing date for submission of concessions is midday on Friday, February 15, 2019.
