Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Burnham-on-Sea jetty supervisor

Jetty hut and beach warden

Ahead of the planned ‘season’ for beach wardens and safety staff to return to Burnham-on-Sea beach, there will be a limited staffing rota, based at the hut at the top of Burnham-on-Sea jetty.  The service will be run on a partial and weather-dependent basis. 

Sedgemoor District Council planned to start the service from the end of June, which would allow for staff recruitment, training and appropriate Covid19 measures put in place to protect the beach staff.    However, due to the unprecedented numbers of visitors to the beach, the Council have put in place a restricted service. 

Visitors to the beach are asked to take note of the numerous safety warnings and heed them.  The beach wardens will be able to summon help from the emergency services if required.    A full service is planned from July 1.
