Author Sir Terry Pratchett meets crew of Burnham's rescue hovercraft

Leading author Sir Terry Pratchett met some of the crewmembers of Burnham-On-Sea's rescue hovercrafts during a visit to the town on Saturday afternoon (November 26th).

The author was in Burnham to switch on the town's Christmas lights and was keen to hear about the work of BARB (Burnham Area Rescue Boat), whose life-saving hovercraft The Light Of Elizabeth was on display at the switch-on ceremony.

"He was interested to hear about the role of our hovercrafts and the work we do," said a BARB spokesman. "It was an honour to have him visit our crew."
