On Thursday 27th May a community partnership worked together to support families by offering them a nature themed activity pack.  The local housing providers, Homes in Sedgemoor, LiveWest and SHAL have been working with Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council putting together family packs for up to 500 children in the local community aged between 5 and 10 years.

Through collaboration, the packs include a locally themed nature activity booklet and bug house kits kindly donated for the community by Bristol based Community Organisation, ‘Semble’. Other donations were provided by the Town Council and housing providers, included colouring pencils, sunflower seeds and compost. The 500 packs have been created and dispersed using COVID 19 grant funding. We hope the nature theme will encourage local families to enjoy getting involved and encourage involvement in future projects.

Kelton Black together with the All Churches volunteers, gave their time to assist in making up packs and delivering them to local families.  The Morland Community Hub was kindly donated to the group for the day to put together the packs, whilst maintaining social distancing. The volunteers distributed packs to local families, the food bank and a small supply to local outlets including Morland Shop, Co-op, ASDA and The One Stop.

It is hoped the activity packs will encourage children to grow a sunflower. This can be entered into a competition later in the year to grow the tallest sunflower that might win a gardening gift set.  The sunflower competition will be open to anyone growing sunflowers in the local community of Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge.  If you would like to know more please contact projects@burnham-highbridge-tc.gov.uk or call 01278 788088.
