Three Somerset community groups have received a share of almost £3,000 from Sedgemoor District Council.

Burnham-on-Sea Events, Cheddar Walking and Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society all received a chunk of the grant funding to put towards events and marketing tools.

Burnham Events received £1,300 towards a weekend event.

The event, which is scheduled to take place on August 12-13, will include a Viking village scene and recreated battles.

Sedgemoor also awarded £1,100 to Cheddar Walking, a community group which promotes the area as a walker-friendly destination.

Chairman Huw Robson was ‘delighted’ to receive the donation, which will go towards three information boards.

Burnham and Highbridge Choral Society was awarded £500 towards its spring concert, which will take place at the end of April in Highbridge.

Peter Read, chairman of the society, said he was ‘very pleased’ with the donation which will help the group to keep ticket prices to the concert as low as possible.
