DURING the recent snowfall, Burnham’s doctors arrived on their patients’ doorsteps with the help of the Burnham Area Rescue Boat (BARB) charity’s 4x4 trucks.

Volunteers for the rescue hovercraft charity helped the medics during the severe winter weather.

BARB’s trucks were busy transporting nurses and doctors from Burnham Medical Centre to home visits in the town.
