The fireworks display due to take place from the Burnham-on-Sea Jetty on Sunday 5th
November 2023 has been postponed.
After a great deal of discussion and debate, Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town
Council has decided to postpone the fireworks display this Sunday, in respect of the
man who went missing from the Jetty earlier this week, when entering the sea to try
and save a woman and her dog.
The Council’s thoughts are with the family and friends of the missing man and all the
emergency services involved in this tragic incident.
The Council understands there will be disappointment that the event has been
postponed, but thanks the residents for their understanding.
The Council will be re-arranging the event in due course and further details will be
published once a date is confirmed.
