TWO long-serving hovercraft pilots at a Somerset charity were thanked for their volunteering efforts.

Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB) gave thanks to Dave Bailey and Clive Weal, two volunteers who have retired after eight years as hovercraft pilots.

They were presented with certificates and the annual telescope award, given to volunteers who have contributed most to the charity’s welfare.

BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat) is run entirely by volunteers and has helped and rescued more than 250 people over the past 21 years.
