Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Celebration of Youth

The Mayor takes great pleasure in inviting you to attend a Celebration of Youth on Saturday October 15th from 2-5pm at King Alfred’s Academy, Burnham on Sea.

The Mayor, Councillor Lesley Millard, has been able to visit many of the Youth Groups who operate in Burnham and Highbridge and would like to showcase all the wonderful achievements of our young people and publicise the amazing work of groups throughout the town.  

Any group working with young people is very welcome to attend.  You can book a stand and/or a display time during the afternoon by emailing admin@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk.

At the end of the afternoon, the Mayor will give out her Youth Awards for this year. They will be divided into two age categories, under 11 and 11-18 years old.  The awards will be for:

  1. Leadership in their group
  2. Supporting their friends/peers in the group
  3. Raising awareness of Climate and Ecological Change

Every youth group will be sent an invitation and a nomination form to complete.  If you haven’t received one, please contact admin@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk or call 01278 788088.

This is an opportunity to recognise our young people’s achievements and aspirations. They are our future and they need to be given a chance to showcase all that they have achieved.  We have a responsibility to ensure that they are encouraged to reach their aspirations.

Please come and join us.
