The Burnham on Sea lighthouse Trail.

My workshop has been taken over for more than a week while myself and helpers Ali Dell (Granddaughter) Sue Mead's, Colleen Blake and Reg Day.Most of the work was done by Ali who plugged away conscientiously for several days.
There have been 32 of these lighthouses made by local furniture maker Woodbury Bros and Haines.
A few years ago the wife of one of the companys directors sadly died from cancer and this project is to raise money for a cancer charity.
On the third of May they will all be placed around the local area and at a later date auctioned of for charity.
Ours is the one with Punch and Judy.
We had to choose a name for our lighthouse and we chose Seaside fun.
